BLTA Salad with Peppered Dill + Parsley Ranch

B - bacon

L - lettuce

T - tomato

A - avocado

All over crisp romaine lettuce, simple pan seared chicken + herbed croutons. It's basically the best salad combination.

I mean BACON in a salad!

Make sure to crisp up that bacon nicely, salt the avocado + serve it all with basil leaves. So many flavors, combinations and textures. It's really a good way to eat your greens.

I used Naked Bacon - It's nitrate free, sugar free + Whole 30 approved!

BLTA Salad with Peppered Dill + Parsley Ranch

1 tablespoon coconut oil

2-3 boneless skinless chicken breast

1 large head of romaine lettuce, chopped or left large

1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half

4 thick cut bacon slices, cook until crisp + patted dry

1 avocado, sliced

1-2 cups herbed gluten free croutons

12 fresh basil leaves, torn

To simply pan sear the chicken + cook it through - heat a sauté pan over high heat with the coconut oil in it. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken breasts with salt + pepper. When the pan is hot, add the chicken + don't touch it until the sides become very white + the under side is crispy brown.

Flip over + cook for 4-6 more minutes or until it's cooked through. Remove the chicken + let it rest on a plate or cutting board before slicing into.

To assemble the salad, place the romaine lettuce around a serving platter or plate. Arrange the tomatoes, bacon, avocado + croutons on top of the lettuce.

Slice the chicken + arrange on the plate. Top with basil leaves + chilled dressing.


Peppered Dill + Parsley Ranch

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/3 cup full fat unsweetened coconut milk

1 heaping tablespoon avocado mayo

1 garlic clove

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

2 heaping tablespoon fresh dill

1 large pinch of each salt + ground black pepper

1 teaspoon white balsamic vinegar

Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Process until smooth + combine. Place in an air tight container with a lid in the refrigerator.

*The more time in the refrigerator, will allow the dressing to set up + become more thick.
