This salad has quickly become a favorite at our house over the last few months. I’ve made it over and over because I am so in love with it and because my garden has been overflowing with cherry tomatoes.
There have been no complaints from my two oldest and/or my parents when I made this for them two times in a row when I had them for dinner.
I can’t get enough of this salad. I could literally eat this for lunch and dinner every day and never get tired of it. My mom is hooked on it too (she’s a smart lady!).
It’s beautiful to look at, simple to make, crazy delicious and goes well with everything.
If you’ve been on the hunt for a new, fabulous salad to try, then look no further. I’ve got your back today! You will love this!!
I usually start with about half the dressing, then add more if needed.
You can certainly add more or less of any of the ingredients.
- 1 head chopped green leaf lettuce
- 1 head chopped red leaf lettuce
- 6 slices cooked and crumbled bacon cooked and crumbled
- 1 1/2 cups of halved grape or cherry tomatoes
- 1 cup grated Swiss cheese
- 2 avocados, diced
- 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup +2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon white vinegar
In a large bowl combine two lettuces, tomatoes, bacon, swiss cheese and avocado.
Toss with desired amount of dressing just before serving. (I don't usually use all the dressing.)
To make dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together all dressing ingredients until smooth and sugar is dissolved.
