Ingredients

  • 6 strips bacon cut into small pieces
  • 12 ounces little tomatoes (e.g. grape or cherry) cut into halves
  • 1 (5 ounce) package baby spinach
  • 2 avocados diced
  • 3.5 ounces mini bocconcini 
  • 2 tablespoons red onion chopped
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Dressing:

  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Pinch of garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Cut bacon into small pieces (I use kitchen shears to make this easy) and add it to a skillet over medium-high heat. Fry until crispy (about 10-12 minutes). Once it's cooked, discard the fat or save it for another use.
  • Meanwhile, prep your other salad ingredients and add them to a large salad bowl.
  • Add the dressing ingredients to a small bowl and whisk until combined.
  • Toss salad with dressing and serve immediately. 

Notes

  • As always, adjust salad dressing ingredients to your tastes (e.g. add more lemon or oil).
  • Serves 2 as a main course or 4+ as a side salad.
