Recipe type: Salad
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 4 cups of organic cherry tomatoes halved (15 cherry tomatoes per cup whole)
  • 1 cup of organic fresh basil chopped
  • ½ cup chopped fresh organic chives
  • 3 cloves of organic garlic
  • 1 organic avocado chopped into chunks
  • 1lb bacon cooked low and slow
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh black cracked pepper
  • 1 cup Hellman's mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
  • ⅓ cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon bacon fat (optional)
  • 4-6 hard-boiled eggs
Instructions
  1. Note: If you don't have organic you can simply use fresh produce from the supermarket.
  2. In a large bowl add your cleaned and halved cherry tomatoes, bacon pieces which I like to make a bit larger so they stand out on the plate, avocado chunks, chopped basil,garlic, salt, pepper and chives.
  3. In a small mixing bowl add your mayonnaise, extra-virgin olive oil, apple cider vinegar then mix with a spoon. Pour this mixture over your tomato salad and gently mix so you fold the dressing into the salad.
  4. Let the salad sit covered on the counter for about 10 minutes so the flavours come together and serve. We top each serving with a hard-boiled egg but this is optional as well.
  5. I also save a bit of the bacon to top on each serving at the end so it makes the dish stand out as well but this is optional.
  6. Enjoy.
