Guacamole Salad is the perfect salad to serve with any Mexican dish! Honestly, you will lick the bowl when you make this. We did!
GUACAMOLE SALAD RECIPE
This Guacamole Salad is basically guacamole on top of some greens instead of tortilla chips. I was interviewed recently and asked if I had to eat one thing for the rest of my life, what would it be? My answer? Guac and chips.
But a healthier version of eating guac and chips for the rest of my life would be these salad ingredients.
It could be because my mom spoon fed me avocado when I was a baby. There’s no surprise that this salad basically called my name. Guacamole with a nice guac to lettuce ratio.
The zing of the vinaigrette, the salty bite of the bacon, and the fresh contrast of the lettuce. Ya’ll. It’s perfection.
You know how you never know what to serve with burritos or enchiladas? This chunky guacamole salad is it! My go-to.
