Last week, I shared a simple new favorite soup of ours. This week I wanted to share a favorite salad. This salad is loaded with hard boiled eggs (which some of you may have a few extra after this weekend!), bacon and avocado for a rich and satisfying light main salad or side salad. The eggs break down in the dressing a bit, making it more creamy and flavorful (oh-so-good), the avocado adds richness and good fats, and who doesn’t like bacon?!
It’s a nice lighter main dish salad too that really doesn’t cost much per serving. While I do try to buy my avocados organic, if the cost is prohibitive, they are one of the better fruits (I believe they are considered fruits not vegetables) to buy non-organic. And with the eggs, bacon and avocado, it has a pretty fair amount of high quality protein and fat. If you are vegetarian, eggs and avocado are good too.
I have been making salads like this since the first year of our marriage and it’s always remained a favorite of ours. And while not quite the quintessential Easter salad, it would do nicely in our humble opinion. Speaking of Easter, I plan on posting some links to Easter friendly recipes on Friday and would love to have you share yours too.
