BLT Salad With Avocado Buttermilk Dressing
Say hello to my new favorite salad!
This is going to be on the menu for lunch a lot I think. Quick, easy and incredibly delicious!!
I serve it with a roasted sweet potato or pile of winter squash on the side. Mmm...
8 cups greens (I used baby kale)
1 pint grape tomatoes
Bacon (I used turkey, but you can use coconut bacon, tempeh bacon, etc.)
Combine salad ingredients in a large salad bowl.
Avocado Buttermilk Dressing
1 ripe avocado
1 cup buttermilk (or non-dairy milk + 1 tbls lemon juice)
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1 garlic clove
1 tsp salt
1 tsp salt-free seasoning blend
Cracked black pepper, to taste
For the dressing, place all ingredients in food processor or blender. Puree until smooth. If you find it too thick, add a bit more buttermilk. Pour desired amount onto salad. Store remaining dressing in the fridge for up to 1 week.
