Romaine, Avocado and Bacon Salad with Warm Balsamic Dressing is a wonderful addition to a winter meal. The combination of salty bacon, buttery avocado, crisp lettuce and warm balsamic is a wonderful variety of flavors!
The salad is a combination of romaine lettuce, avocado, bacon and it’s topped with a warm balsamic dressing. I know a warm dressing can sound a little different, but trust me…it’s so, so good!
There are many varieties of balsamic, but for this recipe, a basic organic balsamic vinegar is a good choice.
For some extra flavor, you can add a fried or poached egg on top of the salad. This combination would be perfect for brunch!
