This is my favorite salad that I serve when company is coming. My sister gave me the original. I have been making this for at lest the last 15 years. I have passed this recipe around so much. I thought I should share it. Every time I serve it. People want the recipe. The dressing brings it together. It is a very delicious salad. Hope you enjoy this as much as my family and friends do. I bet you'll love it!

How to Make Avocado, Bacon Romaine Salad with Vinaigrette

Step-by-Step

  1. Make the dressing mix all ingredients in a shake bottle, and let sit a few hours in fridge before using or even better overnight. I think the dressing is best the next day. It gives the garlic time to infuse the oil and vinegar. Also the dressing is delicious on other salads. If refrigerating overnight. Take bottle of dressing out of fridge two hours before using. Some of the oil may have solidified. Let oil soften. Shake well to dress salad. The reason for refrigerating is the raw garlic in it.
  2. Fry the bacon until crisp.
  3. Chop and rinse the romaine lettuce and dry it.
  4. Chop avocado and rub with lemon so it doesn't turn color.
  5. Chop the red onion and dice the tomato.
  6. Combine all vegetables and avocado in serving bowl. Sprinkle with bacon and feta cheese. Dress with the red wine dressing. Add croutons if wanted.
