Bacon and Avocado Salad

Bacon and Avocado Salad

This bacon and avocado salad is one we once had on one of our many trips to Turkey. It is so simple to make and really is very delicious, as well as being quite healthy.

We have now travelled to Turkey three times together as a family. Once together with the grandparents and twice on our own. We have always stayed in the all-in resorts.

What we loved about the all-in Turkish resorts was the fantastic array of food available. Delicious salads, grilled meat, pancakes, yoghurts, baklava etc – All supremely delicious. We always came back much heavier than we were when we arrived!

Our favourite Turkish resort

Our favourite resort by far was the Lykia World hotel at Oludeniz. This place had not only amazing food, but several restaurants where you paid a bit extra and could try different types of food.

One evening we tried some roasted lamb that had been cooked underground in a special oven. It was one of the best things I have ever tasted.

The weather is perfect there so you can sit outside in the open air in a t-shirt and eat to your heart’s content.

On top of the delicious food, there is also top class entertainment for the kids as well as for the adults.

As you can see my Dad loved the bellydancer who entertained us that evening 🙂

To be very honest I was never really a big salad fan. ‘Rabbit food’ and similar expressions come to mind.

However, this changed since I discovered this simple salad. Now at the time of writing, the summer is rapidly approaching, and we will be spending more time outside. What is better than having a nice salad to accompany something from the BBQ grill?

This one is not only simple and easy to make, but it will satisfy you fully.
