Bacon, avocado and little gem salad
Here are all the elements of a classic BLT in a paleo-friendly salad. Compact heads of little gem resemble romaine with crisp leaves that are sturdy enough to stand up to all the bold flavors here including charred scallions and a heavenly mustard vinaigrette.

- 6 ounces cherry tomatoes
- Small bunch scallions
- 1 avocado
- 1 lemon
