Description

Three of my favorite things joined together in a salad and dressed with creamy dressing full of spunk!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE DRESSING:
  • ½ whole Avocado, Peeled, Pitted, And Cut Into Chunks
  • 1 whole Green Onion, Cut Into Pieces
  • 3 Tablespoons Sour Cream
  • 3 Tablespoons Mayonnaise (or Plain Yogurt)
  • 1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Agave Nectar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1 dash Each, Salt And Pepper (to Taste)
  • FOR THE SALAD:
  • 12 ounces, weight Fresh Salad Greens
  • 1 whole Avocado (peeled, Pitted And Sliced)
  • 6 ounces, weight Bacon, Cooked Until Crisp And Crumbled
  • ⅓ cups Fresh Parmesan Or Romano Cheese Shavings (just Use A Vegetable Peeler)

Preparation

To prepare the dressing, place all dressing ingredients into a small food processor and blend until smooth. Adjust salt and pepper as needed.

Toss dressing with salad greens and top with avocado slices, bacon crumbles, and cheese shavings.

Serves 4.

Note: This dressing makes enough for two salads. If you want to use it up all at once, double the salad ingredients. If not, keep it in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days.

First review on Tasty Kitchen— this salad was AMAZING. Creamy without being too heavy, perfect amount of dressing, deliciously salty from the Bacon. Perfect!
Going to the store tomorrow for more avocados– need more dressing!

I was looking for something quick to throw together for dinner for myself this evening and this was perfect! Easy, fast and delicious. The dressing so smooth and creamy and fresh-tasting. I didn’t have onions or mayo (or yogurt) so I just doubled the sour cream and it’s divine!

This is my new favorite dinner salad. The creamy avocado dressing is perfection and a wonderful tangy contrast to the smoky bacon. Plus, the leftover dressing made a fantastic sandwich spread the next day!
