Running this evening was speed work with the group. Scheduled to run on roads which were quickly becoming icily treacherous, we relocated and ran laps of a local field instead. When we got home we needed food fast,and a bacon and avocado salad was just the thing.
While a few rashers of bacon sizzled away I chopped lettuce, avocado, tomatoes and cucumber. As soon as the bacon was crispy I popped it onto the salad, added a slug of balsamic vinegar to the pan and reduced it slightly then poured over everything. Simple, swift and tasty - perfect post run food.
