Uncommonly Good

Bacon Avocado Broccoli Salad

One day last week I was in the mood for some sweet bacon dressing so I made this salad. It’s a salad that is usually made with spinach, but it worked with what I had on hand.

  • Romaine (torn in bite size pieces)
  • Red Onion (super thin slices)
  • Avocado (thin slices)
  • Hard Boiled Egg (thin slices)
  • Broccoli (bite-size flowerettes)
  • Bacon (cut, scissors work, in 1/2 inch pieces before cooking)
  • Cheese (hard cheese mix, grated)

The assembly is pretty obvious except for the delicious, but totally unhealthy dressing! Basic ingredients for the dressing are oil (bacon grease), sugar and vinegar.
I sprinkled granulated sugar in the hot bacon grease and whisked it to dissolve it. When the sugar was melted I added cider vinegar. I’m not sure, but I think the original recipe called for about equal parts of oil, sugar and vinegar. Once this mixture is blended, pull it from the heat and finish the salad assembly.

I finished building the salad and drizzled the dressing on top after I had the base assembled. Then I garnished it with the bacon and cheese. It was yummy!
