Tomato, Avocado and Bacon Salad #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone,

Today for #SundaySupper we are sharing with you recipes that are 5 ingredients or less, not including salt, pepper, oil or water.  You have to love simple recipes that do not contain a lot of ingredients.  Last weekend as you may have heard I went shopping at the Berkeley Bowl with my #SundaySupper pal Marlene, from Nosh my Way.  When we were shopping I saw some beautiful heirloom tomatoes that I just had to buy.  I had no idea what I was going to make with them, then the craving hit.  I wanted a BLT sandwich, but I didn’t have any bread.  That just makes me sad and frankly I am just to lazy to go to the store to buy a loaf of bread.  So what does a girl do to kill those cravings?  Improvise and make something even better!  I saw those little tomatoes on my windowsill and started to chop away to make BLT style salad, but with a little bit more oomph.  So today I am sharing with you my Tomato, Avocado and Bacon Salad.

The salad is light, full of flavor and creamy from the avocado.  Since I used heirloom tomatoes, and a few of them were super dark red you couldn’t see the bacon.  Talk about a surprise when you take a bite.  Your like dam, was that bacon?  Oh yeah!  The bacon adds a little extra love to it, and you know everything tastes better with bacon.  I also used some fresh basil from the garden and just a pinch of salt, pepper and olive oil.  Super simple tasty salad that makes a perfect side dish or if your like me, you just want to eat the whole bowl.

Tomato, Avocado and Bacon Salad #SundaySupper

I am loving summer produce.  My herbs are doing great in the garden and I am patiently waiting for the tomatoes to ripen.  Then I can have this salad all summer long.

    Just the other day I made a BLAT (bacon, lettuce, avocado, tomato sandwich) and didn’t even think about making it a salad instead. Brilliant!

  2. YUM! I love anything with avocado…AND bacon!

  3. Such a gorgeous, healthy salad! What’s not to love???

  4. Oh, those green zebra tomatoes are my favorite! So flavorful. This salad is how I eat all the time, minus the bacon, but I’ll have to go for a splurge!
