Pesto Avocado Feta Tomato Salad & Avocado BLT with Feta


I was looking for something fresh, quick and easy to make for lunch last weekend and decided to go with a couple of my favorite dishes. I love every single ingredient in these dishes. You really can't go wrong with anything avocado or that has bacon. And throw in some yummy bread and I'm hooked. 




Ingredients {Pesto Avocado Feta Tomato Salad}:
  • 1 cup Sweet Grape or Cherry Tomatoes 
  • 1/2 cup Red Pepper
  • 2 tbs Pesto
  • 1/2 Feta
  • Parmesan 
  • 1 Avocado
Directions:
  • Dice tomatoes in half and chop red pepper, placing in mixing bowl
  • Add pesto, feta and a dash of parmesan to tomatoes and peppers. Mix well
  • Add cubed slices of avocado to tomato mix
  • Chill for 20 minutes & Enjoy as a healthy salad
Ingredients {Avocado BLT with Feta}:
  • Pesto Avocado Feta Tomato Salad
  • 3 Slices of Turkey Bacon
  • A handful of Spinach 
  • Sliced Sourdough or Ciabatta bread {brushed with olive oil}
Directions:
  • Brush bread slices with olive oil and toast until desired crisp 
  • Place spinach on bread
  • Add Tomato salad on spinach 
  • Top with turkey bacon bits 
  • Enjoy!                            

 

Both the salad and the BLT are great with any pasta dish, as a side, 
or just on their avocado-y delicious own.
 I hope you enjoy these fresh dishes as much as I do!

  12. This looks like a quick and easy option to make. It would satisfy all my cravings! I would substitute the bread for a gluten free something but this looks delicious.
