Ingredients

  • 4 slices bacon
  • 3 avocados, halved and pitted
  • 1/2 bunch watercress, stems trimmed
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Lay the bacon in a saute pan and bake for 15 minutes, until crispy. Transfer the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels and let it drain for a couple of minutes.

Scoop out each half of the avocado using an oversized spoon and arrange on a platter. Scatter the watercress over the avocado and crumble the bacon over the top. Drizzle with the lemon juice and olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
