BLT Avocado Salad

Ingredients

4-6 Slices of bacon (cooked and crumbled)

1 tomato, sliced

1 ripe avocado, (mashed)

6 cups baby spinach (or greens of choice)

2 eggs, poached (or fried)

2 tsp Lemon juice  (about 1/2 a lemon)

Salt and pepper to taste

For the Dressing:

1 shallot, finely minced

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

2 teaspoons red wine vinegar

1-2 teaspoons honey (to taste)

¼ cup olive oil

Salt and pepper

Preparation

For the Dressing:

Prepare the dressing by combining all ingredients in a bowl and whisking until well combined and emulsified. Set aside.

For the Salad:

For poached eggs, it may be a challenge but you can do it; or simply follow your gut and heat a skillet over medium heat and add a tablespoon of olive oil. Add two eggs to the pan and cook to desired doneness ( a runny-yolked, sunny-side-up egg). Mash the avocado well, add lemon juice and mix. In a large bowl, toss the spinach in the dressing. Layer the tossed spinach on a plate, top with mashed avocado mixture, then the egg, sprinkle with crumbled bacon.  Serve immediately while the egg is warm and the yolk is runny.
