Sunday Salads: Grilled Avocado BLT Salad
We adore avocados in our family, but somehow have never had them grilled until recently. We tried Grilled Avocados filled with Salsa and fell in love. One of my favorite sandwiches is an avocado BLT and I just knew it would make an awesome salad. Add in the smokiness of the grilled avocado and it is a delicious and hearty summer salad.
In our salad, we used vegan bacon, but traditional or turkey bacon would work great, too. Just cook the bacon as crispy as you like it and chop it into 1-inch sections.
