BLT Avocado Crunch Salad (Bacon Bliss in Every Bite)

Making a BLT Salad with Avocado is simple. Just cook some bacon until it’s crispy, then mix it with lettuce, tomatoes, and avocado. For the dressing, chop up tomatoes and mix them with light mayo, salt, and pepper. Let it sit for a bit, and it’s ready to use. 

If you’re taking it to work, layer the ingredients in a jar with tomatoes at the bottom, then avocado and lettuce. Just remember not to keep it for too long or the avocado might turn brown. Adding chopped chives is optional, but it makes it taste even better!

  • Large mixing bowl
  • Whisk
  • Cutting Board
  • Knife



  • 1 Head Green Leaf lettuce chopped
  • 1 head Red leaf lettuce chopped
  • 6 slices Crispy bacon crumbled
  • 1 1/2 cups Halved grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup Grated Swiss cheese
  • 2 Ripe Avocados diced


  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp White vinegar


  • Mix the two lettuces, tomatoes, bacon, Swiss cheese, and avocado in a big bowl.
  • Just before eating, pour on some dressing and gently mix it in. (Tip: You might not need all the dressing—I usually start with half and add more if I want.)

To make the dressing:

  • Whisk together all the dressing ingredients until smooth and the sugar is dissolved.


  • Feel free to use any lettuce you like! I prefer green and red leaf lettuce, but romaine works too.
  • Start with half the dressing and add more if you want. You can always adjust to your taste.
  • Change up the ingredients to make it just the way you like it!

What Kind of Lettuce is Best For a Chopped BLT Salad?

What Kind of Lettuce is Best For a Chopped BLT Salad?

It’s up to your taste! I like Bibb lettuce because it’s mild and crunchy, like what you’d find in a BLT sandwich. But you can also use romaine or iceberg lettuce for extra crunch, or arugula.

if you want a peppery kick. And if you’re into a bit of bitterness, give chicories like endive or radicchio a try. Lots of choices to make it just right for you.

Can I Add More Stuff to My BLT Salad with Avocado?

Yes! You can toss in crunchy croutons, yummy shredded cheese, or even some grilled chicken for extra protein. Just make it how you like it!
