For the Salad:

1 cup

Roasted red peppers or 2 red bell peppers, roasted, skins removed, peeled and sliced


Avocado, sliced

6 tablespoons

Avocado oil

1/2 cup

Red wine vinegar

  1. Assemble the salads on individual plates by layering spinach, a hard-boiled egg, a few slices of roasted red pepper and avocado, and a tablespoon of chopped pecans.

  2. Cook the bacon in a skillet until browned and slightly crisp. Remove from pan, leaving the bacon grease, and chop the bacon and set aside.

  3. Add the shallots into the pan with the bacon grease, and sauté over medium heat until they just begin to brown.

  4. Add the avocado oil, red wine vinegar, chopped bacon, sweetener, and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a low simmer and then remove from heat.

  5. Top the salads while the dressing is still hot to wilt the spinach.
