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.
