Hearts of Romaine Salad with Bacon, Avocado and Sun Dried Tomato

Hearts of Romaine Salad with Bacon, Avocado and Sun Dried Tomato

I served this hearts of romaine salad with bacon, avocado, and sun-dried tomatoes for dinner recently and it was a hit with the whole family. We had some leftover bacon from breakfast, some oven “sun-dried” tomatoes, romaine hearts, red onion, and Parmesan in the refrigerator then grabbed an avocado and threw this salad together. I drizzled some parmesan vinaigrette and lots of freshly cracked black pepper on top right before serving. This hearts of romaine salad with bacon, avocado, and sun-dried tomato paired perfectly with the chicken parmesan I served it with and was devoured quickly! Seriously, even my son had seconds. I’ll definitely be making this salad again.

  1. What a fabulous salad! Love the combo of flavours…and I need to make one too.

  2. looks pretty delicious for just a throw together, but you real cooks can do things like that.

  3. This sounds delicious to me but I have a husband who is not fond of lettuce!!! He loves my salads but they cannot have lettuce in them. Stay safe Diane
