Ingredients:

  • 12 slices lean center cut bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 4 Roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise (I use Hellman’s)
  • 1/8 tsp kosher salt
  • fresh black pepper, to taste
  • 6 cups chopped Romaine lettuce
  • 4 oz (1 medium) hass avocado, diced

Directions:

In a medium bowl, combine the diced tomatoes with the mayonnaise, and season with a little salt and fresh cracked pepper. Set aside for about 10 minutes to let the tomatoes release their juices as this will be the “dressing” to your salad.

To serve, divide the chopped lettuce and tomatoes onto 4 plates, then top each with diced avocado and chopped bacon.
