These ingredients are just my favorite toppings, but feel free to change it up. Sautéed mushrooms and shallots are delicious! Ranch or basaltic vinaigrette can be swapped for the homemade blue cheese dressing, too! Make it your own.

1 tomato, chopped
1/2 avoado, chopped
3 strips bacon, chopped
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1 cup cooked chicken, cut into bite sized pieces (about 1 chicken breast)
3 cups chopped romaine lettuce
1/3 cup blue cheese crumbles
1/2 cup yogurt
2 tablespoons mayo (I used the olive oil variety)
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
Salt and Pepper
2 teaspoons reserved bacon fat, optional
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper or a splash of hot sauce, optional
Salad: In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat a drizzle of olive oil. Add in the bacon and cook until crispy, about 7 minutes. Place the bacon on a paper-towel lined plate and set aside. Reserve the bacon fat for the dressing, optional.
To assemble the salad, place the lettuce on a platter. Vertically lay each component next to each other; the cooked bacon, cooked chicken, avocado, hardboiled eggs, and tomato.
Dressing: In a medium bowl, mix all of the ingredients. Toss with the salad. Enjoy! :)
*To make the perfect hardboiled eggs, heat a few inches of water in a large skillet. Cold water boils faster. Gently place the eggs in the boiling water. Cover, cook for 12 minutes. Peel and eat for breakfast, a snack, use them in this recipe!
