I'm no food blogger, but this is yummy.

I'm a big salad fan, but I find it is very easy to A) take a healthy salad and jack the calories up like crazy with all the add-ons you can use, and B) just get plain old bored of salads. This one however, has not hit either of those. The dressing gives it enough zest that it is just so good, and the fiber in the tomatoes, avocado and greens generally fills me up very nicely. Also, bacon. Need I say more? I would say without exaggeration that this has been my lunch on work days for the past 2-3 weeks, and I honestly don't see it stopping anytime soon.

BLTA Salad.

  • Greens, I use a mix of spinach and arugula

  • Goat cheese

  • Bacon (if you have it, it's yummy both ways but obviously bacon makes it way better)

  • Cherry Tomatoes

  • Avacado

Dressing (I don't measure out any ingredients for my homemade dressings, I just add until I find the best combination; for the oil to vinegar ratio, I`d say it's 1 part oil to 2 parts vinegar):

  • Olive Oil

  • Dijon Mustard

  • Garlic

  • Apple Cider Vinegar

  • Salt & Pepper to taste

* this dressing is very easy to manipulate. Personally I love vinegar, so I sometimes even go 1:3 for oil to vinegar ratio. It's also delightful with balsamic, but I really enjoy ACV for the multitude of benefits it's brings to the table (that is, if you're using the raw kind).

Chop your tomatoes into quarters, slice up your avocado the way you like and chop the bacon into little chunks. Throw together with goat cheese crumbles, drizzle your dressing over and shake shake shake! Okay, I do this in a container, so maybe don't shake if you're using a bowl ;)

Ridiculously easy - I throw it together in about 5 minutes on my lunch break, super delicious and quite good for you. Win, win win.

BLT saladLike I said, not a food blogger and even more so, not a food photographer. Photo cred goes to theLondoner, because her salad looks the same as mine, just much prettier.
