We love this fresh salad that's great for a super healthy lunch or dinner. It combines hard-boiled eggs with crispy bacon, crunchy lettuce and tasty avocado – plus its delish dressing will really complete this dish.

Now that Spring is here, it's a perfect lunch or dinner dish as the protein in the eggs and bacon, along with the ultra-healthy avocado, will help you to feel fuller for longer. We like!
