Salads aren’t normally “bachelor food”, but I’ve found if you throw enough bacon and other goodies on a salad you can’t even taste that it’s healthy. Welcome the Bachelor Cooking House Salad:

House Salad

Prep Time: 20 min     Cook Time: 7 min

Ingredients:

  • Lettuce (about 1/2 a head)
  • Spinach (a couple handfulls)
  • Avocado (1)
  • Bacon (1/2 lb)
  • Feta Cheese (2 oz)
  • Red Onion (a little)
  • Olives (black and/or green)
  • Croutons
  • Dressing of your choice

 

Directions:

  1. Start first by frying up the bacon. It can cook while you do the other steps.
  2. Wash and tear the lettuce and spinach into small bite size pieces.
  3. Cut up the avocado, olives, & red onion into small or big chunks depending on how you like it.
  4. When the bacon is done dab it with a paper towel to soak up excess grease. Crumble/crush it over the salad.
  5. Mix everything together.

Tips & Tricks:

  • Don’t add anything you don’t like.
  • Try things that you think you don’t like.
  • Add grilled chicken if you want more protein.
  • Croutons get soggy so do NOT add those until you are ready to eat (leftovers)
  • Avocado goes brown (oxidation) quickly, it’s still good–but you can prevent the discoloring by leaving the seed/pit in the container.
  • The less dressing you use the healthier this salad remains.
