Avocado Dressing:


Instructions Checklist
  • Avocado Dressing: In a blender or mini-chopper, blend avocado, oil, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, salt, cayenne pepper and water, until smooth. Thin dressing with additional water if desired.

  • Salad: Divide salad greens among individual plates. Place a mound of chicken in center of each. Arrange turkey-style bacon, tomatoes, egg wedges and red onion around chicken. Sprinkle with blue cheese. Drizzle with dressing just before serving.


Use diced ham in place of chicken and regular bacon in place of turkey-style bacon. Use shredded Cheddar, Swiss, Gouda or your favourite cheese instead of blue cheese.
