I know that I have mentioned this before, but I love a good BLT. What I love even more is a good BLC (Bacon, Lettuce and Cucumber). I became a fan of BLC's a few years ago and honestly, unless I order one when I am out or someone makes one for me, I always use cucumber instead of tomato. My theory.. cucumbers are always fresh - tomatoes, not so much. Of course, when I saw this recipe for peppered balsamic mayo... well, the logical choice was to try it. I mean, my favorite sandwich made with a delicious new kind of mayo??? I would have been a fool to pass it up, right? :)
