between the zero waste thing and the juice cleanse i did in may, the food i'm buying and cooking has changed A LOT. i'm not sick of quinoa yet, but my bf is, so i've been trying to make things that don't require packaged products and are also relatively healthy. i decided to re-create the amazing BLTA salad i had a cheeky's in palm springs - with a few small changes!
6 slices of bacon - buy from the meat counter so you can get it in your own container!
3-4 handfuls of mache
2 handfuls of cherry tomatoes, halved
1 avocado, cubed
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons organic mayo - this was store bought, but once i run out i might try making my own!
2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
step 1: cook the bacon so its crispy. drain on a towel & let cool. cut the tomatoes and avocado, place in a bowl with the mache. crumble the bacon and put in the bowl.
the salad turned out delicious (obviously - it has bacon)! also - super fast and easy, perfect for a week night dinner!
