Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes


For the Salad
About 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 slices LightLife® Smart Bacon
2 slices whole wheat bread, cubed
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Fine sea salt, to taste
1/2 head of romaine lettuce, thinly sliced
1 large heirloom tomato, cut into wedges
1 small ripe avocado, thinly sliced
Fresh basil, for garnishing
For the Dressing
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon vegan mayo
1 tablespoon Dijon or brown mustard
1 teaspoon maple syrup or honey
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1. Heat a small drizzle of olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Arrange the Smart Bacon in a single layer and cook for 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

2. Add a generous glug of oil to the same skillet and add the bread. Season with garlic powder and salt, and cook, tossing frequently, until golden and crispy, about 5 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, make the dressing. Combine all the ingredients in a small jar, close tightly with a lid, and shake until creamy and homogenous. Alternatively, combine the ingredients in a bowl and whisk to incorporate.

4. When the bacon has cooled, chop it into small bits.

5. To assemble the salad, place the lettuce on a large platter, then arrange the tomatoes and avocados on top. Sprinkle on the croutons and chopped bacon, and drizzle with the dressing. Garnish with basil and serve immediately.
