Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato Salad

Red, ripe tomatoes, fresh from the garden.  Yum! One of the nice things about tomato season is Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato Sandwiches.  Most of the year, we don't buy bacon, but come August....
Since we are trying to reduce the amount of bread we consume and at the same time increase the amount of greens we eat, salad seemed the way to go.

So here's how I make a 

Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato Salad

1 head romaine (or any lettuce that looks delicious), ripped or chopped into bite sized pieces
6 slices bacon, (regular, turkey, or vegetarian equivalent) cooked crisp and crumbled
3 hard boiled eggs, chopped
2 - 3 tomatoes, chopped
1 cucumber, peeled and seeded if necessary, and chopped
1 avocado, diced

2 Tbs mayo, or similar sandwich spread
2 tsp mustard
2 Tbs  milk or non-dairy alternative

Whisk the dressing ingredients together.

Toss the lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, and avocado with the dressing. Top with the eggs and bacon.

This makes a pretty, delicious main dish salad.
