Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup ~ 2014 tag game and this is definately a keeper! DH and I love every ingredient in this dish so I knew it was going to be a hit. Made as instructed and this will be a great salad for this summer. Thank you for posting.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fry bacon in a large skillet; drain on paper towels ~ reserve 2 tablespoons bacon fat.
  2. Heat reserved bacon fat over medium heat. Add garlic, 1⁄4 cup water (carefully, because it will sputter a little), the lemon juice, sugar, salt, and pepper, and simmer 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  3. Stir in parsley and crumble in bacon. Cool slightly.
  4. Prepare individual salad plates with about 1/2 cup spring greens on each plate; top with avocado wedges.
  5. Immediately spoon a small amount of vinaigrette over avocado wedges on each plate ~ top each plate with 1 tablespoon Gorgonzola, and serve.
