Bacon Avocado Salad
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
I was actually looking through my recipe box and found this one again. I saved it a while back for later and never made it. What a mistake! This hit on all cylinders. It’s tasty, healthy, and quite filling. I used aguave instead of sugar but that’s the only substitute. I made it more meal-like by sautéing a little shrimp in the bacon drippings and served them on the side. Thank you for sharing this.
My family enjoyed this tasty salad. We served the dressing on the side. We will make this again! Thanks for a great recipe.
This is the best salad ever. It always gets rave reviews. If you want to bring this somewhere to a picnic. Put the whole salad together except for the tomatoes, dressing , and avocado. Serve the dressing on the side for the guests. Mix avocado with lemon juice. Add it to the salad with the tomatoes before serving.
This was a huge hit when I took this to a pot luck. I followed the other reviewers advice to place lettuce on top and mix when you are ready to serve to keep everything from getting soggy. I did swap out tomatoes for cherry tomatoes, used only half a red onion and 1/2 the dressing. Also subbed with blue cheese as that is what I had on hand. Incredibly delicious! Thank you for this recipe! It’s definitely a keeper.
This salad is not to be missed. Everyone at the table had second or even thirds last night when I served it! I used a Sweet Vidalia onion. To take to a Pot Luck, I put the prepped ingredients, except for the lettuce and the dressing, in the bottom of a large salad bowl. I drizzled about 2/3 of the dressing over (this helped the avocados not to turn brown), then topped with the cut up Romaine. I covered the salad, kept it cold, and tossed it when the hostess was ready to serve. Can't wait to make it again tonight...it's that good!
