Avocado, Bacon and Tomato Salad Recipe

Avocado, Bacon and Tomato Salad Recipes

Ingredients :

6 garlic cloves, unpeeled

4 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

2 tsp Dijon mustard

250g rindless, smoked back bacon

100g green salad leaves

1 small red onion, halved and sliced

2 avocados, peeled and cut into 1.5cm chunks

450g ripe tomatoes, cut into 1.5cm chunks

Method :

Preheat the oven to 350F, Gas 4. Put the garlic on a baking tray and roast in the oven for 30 minutes. Allow the garlic to cool, then squeeze out the flesh and mash in a small bowl. Add the olive oil, balsamic vinegar and Dijon mustard, and whisk together well. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Chop the bacon into bite sized pieces then grill or dry fry for about 4 minutes, or until it is crispy. Put the salad leaves in a serving bowl and add the bacon, sliced onion, avocado and tomato. Toss together well. Whisk the dressing ingredients again to ensure they are well combined, then pour it over the salad.

While this may seem like a lot of garlic, roasting the cloves will give a soft, sweet flavor, which will not overpower the salad. Smoked back bacon is available from most delicatessens. You can use bacon rashers instead.

Serves 4 - 6
