Ingredients

For the dressing:

  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt (can use sour cream)
  • 2 tablespoons milk or buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
  • ½ teaspoon dried dill
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon dried parsley
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

For the salad:

  • 8 slices bacon
  • 1 head Romaine lettuce, washed and chopped (about 8 cups)
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 large ripe avocado, pitted, peeled, and sliced
  • 2 cups homemade croutons
  • ¼ red onion, thinly sliced

Instructions

  • First, make the dressing. In a small bowl, combine the Greek yogurt, milk, lemon juice, chives, dill, garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, salt, and pepper. Whisk until smooth. Set aside.
  • Place the bacon strips in a large cast-iron or nonstick skillet and heat over medium heat. Turn the strips as needed until they reach the desired crispness, 8 to 12 minutes. Drain well on a paper-towel-lined plate.
  • Place the chopped lettuce in a large bowl. Add the tomatoes, avocado, croutons, and onion. Chop the cooked bacon strips and add them to the salad. Drizzle with dressing and serve immediately.
