BLT Avocado Salad

 

BLT SaladHappy Friday!!!!

Every few months I have an intense craving for a BLT with avocado and extra mayo.  Like really intense.  I usually give in and go to the local deli but this summer I’m trying to eat healthy and drop a bunch of extra jiggle before I head out for my August vacation — that means seriously chilling out on the carb intake.

Enter the BLT salad — a carb free alternative that completely hit the spot and satisfied my craving. I made this with green goddess dressing but you can use whatever salad dressing makes you happy.

Enjoy this carb-free (not) guilty pleasure and enjoy your sunny summer weekend!
