bacon feta salad

Cheese and bacon – that’s what makes a salad delicious! This refreshing salad full of bold flavors is my go-to! You can serve it as a side, or add protein and make it a meal. It’s always great and makes for a nice crisp salad with all the feel-good of comfort foods.

Serves: 2 large salads or 4 side saladsIMG_3394
Prep Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

1 head of romaine lettuce, chopped
3 pieces of cooked bacon, crumbled
⅓ of a cucumber cut into half-moons
¼ of a red onion sliced
Balsamic vinaigrette
Feta cheese for topping
Croutons (optional)

 

 

Make it your own: Add more veggies or chicken, steak, or a boiled egg for a more complete filling meal. My measurements are just suggestions! If you love cucumber, bacon, or anything else just add more!

Directions:

  1. Cook bacon however you prefer (I prefer stove-top, but for this I throw it in the oven at 425º for 12-15 min so I can cut veggies while the bacon crisps up)
  2. While bacon is cooking, chop romaine
  3. Cut cucumbers and red onions and add to salad distributing evenly among servings.
  4. Sprinkle with feta cheese and top with croutons
  5. When bacon is cool enough to touch, crumble over salads
  6. Serve with balsamic vinaigrette

Tip: If this becomes a favorite salad of yours (like me), keep pre-cut cucumbers and red onions on hand to minimize prep time and enjoy multiple times throughout the week.
