Avocado and Bacon Salad

Avocado and Bacon Salad


This recipe calls for a head of lettuce, which can make a huge salad. If your head of lettuce is a large one, I'd advise using less lettuce (possibly 12/-3/4 head), or increase the other ingredients. As it stands this is a large salad, although at this point, I'm unsure exact numbers of servings. You may safely half the recipe and feel free to tweak ingredients to your liking, adding more bacon or avocado if you're inclined. This is a simple salad so best quality ingredients will make a big difference. I use fresh lemon juice and streaky bacon with a high proportion of meat to fat.

Dressing (mix and set aside):

1 1/2 teas lemon juice
1/4 c sour cream
1/2 c mayonnaise
1/4 teas salt
1/4 teas freshly ground pepper

Salad

8 slices thick bacon (sliced 1/4 inch thick and crisply cooked )
1 bunch scallions (sliced 1/8 inch thick)
2 ripe avocados (peeled and cut into chunks)
1 head romaine lettuce, torn in bite size pieces
salt and pepper, if needed

Mix salad ingredients in a large bowl. Pour dressing over all and gently toss. Let sit for 5-10 minutes before serving.
