I may never eat avocado without bacon again. This was such a good appetizer or salad. I don't know what to call it. Ok I do know what to call it:AMAZING. It really was a superb meal. If you have an avocado and bacon in your fridge you will not be hungry. Just two simple ingredients and together it was a marriage in delicious.

Avocado with Warm Bacon Cilantro Dressing 
Adapted from Living Eventfully

1/3 pound sliced bacon (about 4 slices) 
2 firm-ripe avocados, each pitted, peeled, and cut into 4 to 6 wedges(I just chopped them roughly)
3 garlic cloves, minced 
1/4 cup water 
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice 
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar 
Kosher salt 
Freshly ground black pepper 
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro 

Cook bacon in a skillet over medium-low heat until crisp. Drain bacon on paper towels. 
Remove pan from heat and pour the bacon fat into a bowl. Add 2 tbsp. bacon fat back into your skillet. Divide the sliced avocado wedges among 4 plates. Heat bacon fat over medium heat. Add garlic, 1/4 cup water, lime juice, and sugar and simmer for 1 minute, stirring. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in cilantro. Crumble the bacon in to the skillet. Stir until combined. Spoon over avocado wedges and serve immediately. Makes four servings.
