Tasty Tuesday: bacon salad

Let me first clear this with - I LOVE bacon. Bacon and eggs, BLTs, steak wrapped in bacon - you name it, I love it. So when I'm too tired to cook, a great go-to is bacon salad. Bacon salad is easy, fast, can be healthy, and oh-so-good.

Serves 2:
Toss organic mixed greens in a bowl with
1 chopped up tomato
1/2 avocado
2 tbsp soft goat cheese
5 slices of cooked bacon

Matt prefers bacon cooked in a skillet - I dig the micro-bacon (wrap bacon in paper towels and microwave for 2-3min until crispy brown.

To dress:
2 tbsp olive oil (I love the kind from Lucas ranch)
2 tbsp balsamic
pinch sea salt
pinch pepper

Yesterday I healthed it up a bit by adding 6 spears of steamed asparagus cut in 1-in sections.
