This salad looks so yummy. Love avocados, but it's hard to find a good one here in the city.

Jo said...

I don't like avocado but the rest of it looks yummy.

Substituting green beans for the peas would make this Keto friendly. You had me at bacon.

Miss Val's Creations said...

Yummy! Of course I would use soy bacon. We are attempting to grow avocados from seed. It doesn't seem to be going well! They are expensive here.

Oh my God that looks good. One to try for sure. Anything with avocado is a winner in my book,

Joyful said...

The salad look delicious. The avocados look big and nicely ripened unlike what we get here but I buy and eat them any way ;-)

I love the look and ingredients for this salad! I eat a salad everyday at lunch ad this would be a great one to rotate. Thank you!

NanaDiana said...

This sounds delicious but I would leave out the peas. My 'system' does not tolerate them. The rest of it? Delicious!!! xo Diana

I have everything but the chicken! Something inspired by this will be in my future today...Perhaps hard-boiled egg? Perhaps salmon?

Catarina said...

A very healthy and easy salad.

Mary Kirkland said...

I've made a salad almost the same as this. I love a good salad.

Avocados are one of my favorite fruits. I love to eat them plain, too. Loved the 20 tips, and one your mixed media and fabric readers might enjoy is the skins and seed can be cut in pieces, cooked, then strained to make the most beautiful pink dye for fabric.

Beautiful spring flowers to brighten my snowy day, Jan.

Magic Love Crow said...

Looks so good! Thank you Jan! Big Hugs!

William Kendall said...

That sounds like quite a meal.

Iris Flavia said...
