"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!"
"This was very good. I subbed turkey bacon for the bacon. I also added feta cheese. I loved the the tanginess of the dressing. Will definitely make again."
"D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!!! I am a BLT and avocado lover so how could this salad have been any better? My ONLY complaint was it took a LOT more liquid to get the dressing to a "liquidy enough" consistency than I expected, but oh how yummy it was when I finished!"
"Hmmm...This received an "ok" from both my hubby and me. It wasn't bad - but we didn't think it was great either. Kind of "ok"..."
"What a great treat,this is the best tasting dressing I have EVER eaten.My gosh it was Sooooo good.I liked it being thick and creamy. That Dressing just makes this a fabulous salad. Thank You, Darlene"
"Wonderful! As others have noted, I didn't exactly get the dressing to 'drizzle,' either, even with about 3 Tbsp of olive oil. I think next time I might increase it even a bit more (perhaps an olive/canola oil combination), but it tasted superb this way too. I used all baby spinach leaves, which worked well, and went back to add a bit of finely chopped red onion for extra color and flavor. Definitely a special treat, especially in a salad. Thanks so much for sharing! :o)"
"What a great salad. I used turkey bacon. I also added a touch of honey and a splash of orange juice to the dressing and dare I say it was the best salad dressing EVER. "
"I was looking for something moderately low carbs and high taste and enjoyed this easy to make salad. Hard to think of ways to achieve that BLT effect I love without the bread.. This is an original one the whole family enjoyed. I also couldn't get the dressing to drizzle..not a big concern, wonder if adding a little olive oil to avacado mixture might help spread it out more evenly instead of globs."
"Great salad! I didn't get the dressing to "drizzle" and added more of all liquids, but very tasty nonetheless. This would be great served on individual salad plates as it makes such a pretty presentation."
