I'm not the best chef, to say the least, but sandwiches I can do. This recipe from Giada looks DE-LISH! I really want to try it!

Smoked Salmon BLT
4 slices thick cut bacon
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill leaves
8 (1/2-inch thick) slices multigrain bread
6 ounces smoked salmon
1 cup arugula, divided
2 large or 3 medium tomatoes, sliced
In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, cook the bacon until crispy, about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Remove from the skillet and drain on paper towels.

In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lemon zest, lemon juice, and fresh dill. Spread the lemon mayonnaise over 1 side of each slice of bread. Arrange the smoked salmon on 4 slices of the bread. Break the bacon in half and put on top of the smoked salmon. Top the bacon with 1/2 cup of arugula and arrange 2 to 3 tomato slices on top of the arugula. Cover with remaining slices of bread, lemon mayonnaise side down.

Arrange the sandwiches on a platter and serve
