This is unbeatable combinations of bacon and avocado. Food for the Gods and so super simple. I saw this on the internet, but was unable to get the recipe because the site kept freezing my computer so I made it from the picture. Don’t know what theirs tasted like, but this is really good. I love to take a recipe and play with it and make it my own anyway.
1 pound of macaroni or pasta of your choice
1 package of pre-cooked bacon (12 slices chopped)
2 or 3 ripe avocados
1 tablespoon chopped chives or dill. (You pick the flavor you wish to add to the salad)
1 ¼ cup of mayo
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
Boil your macaroni in salted water until it is al dente. Drain and set aside to cool.
Pit and cut up your avocados. Squeeze the juice of 1 lemon on the avocados to keep their color.
Using a kitchen scissors, cut up your slices of cooked bacon. Using the scissors cut your dill or chives as small as you can. I prefer the chives because I have it in my garden. Don’t use both.
In a large bowl, mix your mayonnaise with your pasta. Add your bacon, chives, garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste. Carefully fold in your avocados. Chill and serve cold.
Variations – I like it very simple but you can add 2 cups of halved cherry tomatoes and/or ½ cup sliced black olives for more flavor and color. You can some red onion for color and/or celery if you like, but don’t overwhelm the taste of the avocado. It is the star of the show along with the bacon.
This recipe screams summer. Have a great summer day. Be happy and may God bless you and yours.
