BLT with Avocado Spread

I was never a bacon person before Paleo, but I have become to really like the flavor.  I get the turkey or beef bacon from Trader Joes.  It’s uncured, all natural with no nitrites or nitrates.  This is a very simple recipe that is very fast if you’re short on time.

2 bacon strips, cooked

2 thick tomato slices

2 romaine leaves

1 Avocado

1 tbsp lemon juice

1/2 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tsp garlic powder

Black pepper to taste

  1. Mash the avocado with a fork in a small bowl.
  2. Add lemon, olive oil, garlic powder and black pepper and mix well.
  3. Spread onto your lettuce leaves and top with bacon and the tomato.

I had some left over Kids Love Cabbage Slaw with this.

    Great idea Krista! I was going to use whole wheat bread but what an awesome idea to use the lettuce leaves instead. I don’t usually use avocado on BLT’s but I am thinking that sounds DELICIOUS!!! So glad I checked out your recipe. I am going to make this for dinner tomorrow 🙂 I have veggie bacon that I need to use up and this will be PERFECT.

      You’ll love it! I had it twice last week for lunch. It’s so easy and sometimes, let’s face it. Salads can get old. Let me know how it turns out with your veggie bacon!
