    quantumgirl's Note:

    This is my favorite company salad, especially in nice weather. Good with dinner or brunch/lunch. It looks and tastes fantastic and my guests always ask for the recipe. I adapted it from Martha Stewart but it's amazingly easy. (Also, despite the richness of the bacon and avocado, I figured it as only 4 weight watchers points per serving for 6 servings, 6 pts for 4!) I love this salad and I hope you enjoy it, too.

      This is a wonderful salad!!! I made it exactly as you stated and I wouldn't change a thing. I am going to make it again this weekend when I have guests over. Thank you Quantumgirl for sharing this amazing salad.

      Lovely, lovely, lovely. I can't say a bad thing about this salad. I made the dressing with fresh basil and used about 4 tsp olive oil and 2 tsp vinegar. It didn't exactly "drizzle" but it was tasty nonetheless and I liked how it turned out thick and almost creamy.

      This is a great new dish for those of us who low-carb it. (Monotony being the problem with a low-carb plan). I made it per recipe directions - I didn't have lime juice on hand and so I used lemon juice instead. Even my DH liked it! I looked up carb values for the tomatoes and avocado - it looks like this salad has about 8-9 grams of carb per serving. I'll be making this again and again. Thanks for posting!
