ABC Salad (Avocado, Bacon & Chicken Salad)

IMG_3129

 

It’s almost summer! When the weather gets warm, I tend to like to keep things in the food department fresh, light and simple.  That way, I have more time and energy to enjoy outdoor activities. I may or may not be guilty of spending a lazy afternoon in our pool and lounging about outside yesterday. 😉 This recipe I call my ABC salad because the A is for avocado, B is for bacon & the C is for grilled chicken.  Seriously, who needs croutons when you can have bacon?  Pair this salad with my cilantro lime vinaigrette, and you have one winning combination.

Ingredients:

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

salt and pepper to taste

4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

1 avocado, sliced or chopped (be sure to squeeze a little lime or lemon juice on it after cut up – to prevent oxidization, and I also sprinkle it with a little salt)

1 roma tomato, sliced or chopped

1/4 cup red onion, chopped

1/2 of an english cucumber, sliced

salad greens,  washed, dried & chopped ( use whatever greens you enjoy)

Dressing:

1 recipe of my cilantro lime vinaigrette

Directions:

Pound out chicken, until the breasts are the same thickness throughout. Season with cumin, smoked paprika, and salt and pepper.

Toss those on the grill, and grill 10 – 15 minutes per side, or until juices no longer run pink.

Let chicken rest on a plate for ten minutes loosely covered with foil. Then cut into strips.

Place washed salad greens in a large bowl, drizzle about half of the vinaigrette on the greens and toss coating well.

Assemble salad by adding the tomato, cucumber & onions to the greens.

Then top with avocado, chicken & bacon crumbles.

Serve reserved dressing on the side.
