Turkey Bacon Avocado Salad with Garlic Dill Dressing

Turkey Bacon Avocado Salad with Garlic Dill Dressing. Small Town Girl Blog. Another protein packed dinner salad for these hot summer days! Turkey, bacon, and avocado together is one of my all time favs. Add a creamy dill dressing to the mix and you’ve got a winner! Yum 🙂

Once upon a time, I lived in a little shoe box of an apartment in Bellingham, WA. I was so proud, it was my first apartment. For $400 a month, I was allotted a crumby extension that was haphazardly attached to the back of a very large historic house….. it was a shit-hole. Every time I think of it now, I cringe. But that first time living alone is such a big deal, you overlook certain facts like; having the laundry room on the 2nd floor of the actual house, or that your neighbors were most likely drug dealers, or that your oven was so small you couldn’t fit a Papa Murphy’s pizza in it! Ah home, lol. Less than a block away was a little sandwich shop called The Sandwich Odyssey. It’s a pretty famous joint and it looks like it’s still in business 15 years later, so that’s neat! They have the best Turkey Bacon Avocado sandwich on earth! What makes it so good? Well it’s starts with roasted turkey, not the deli kind, so that initially takes it up a notch. Oh and the perfect amount of bacon and tons of avocado. So delish! That is where the inspirations for the salad started. I used deli meat this time but I think either would work great!

2 tips of the dressing:Turkey Bacon Avocado Salad with Garlic Dill Dressing. Small Town Girl Blog.

  1. Make it at least an hour ahead of serving! The dill needs time to soften and release its flavors
  2. Easy to lighten up: I actually make it with fat-free sour cream, light mayo, and 1% milk. It’s pretty darn tasty for a light dressing.

Ingredients:

Dressing:

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 garlic cloves, pressed or minced
  • 2 tbsp dill

  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
