This salad is extra-delicious with the crispy bacon bits on top.  I added it as an afterthought and it was a good thought, turns out! I crumbled the very crispy bacon into tiny bits and sprinkled them on top of the salad.  It just took the flavors and texture a little over the top!

How to ripen avocados...after many years (and wasting avocados...shhh!), I figured it out.  Place in a bag or paper bag with an open end in the pantry or cupboard (i.e. a dark place) and wait until they ripen to the point that you can press the avocados and make a very slight indentation with your finger....maybe that's not the right word.  It will give a little under the pressure of your finger. :)  Place in the refrigerator and use when desired.  You could use it in a week or two weeks and it will still be lovely, fresh and green.  Try it!

3 cups diced, cooked chicken (375 mL)
2 California avocados, peeled, seeded and
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 medium Roma tomato, chopped
3 slices bacon, cooked crispy
1/cup mayonnaise (75 mL)
1/cup sour cream (60 mL)
1 tbsp lemon juice (15 mL)
1 tbsp Parmesan cheese (15 mL)
1/tsp crushed garlic (2 mL)
  (the bottled kind is what I used)
1/4  tsp salt (1 mL)
1/4  tsp black pepper (1 mL)

In large bowl, combine chicken, chopped avocados, chopped pepper and tomato.

Dressing:  In small bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, Parmesan cheese, crushed garlic, salt and black pepper.  Pour dressing over chicken mixture and gently toss to combine.  Place in a salad bowl and sprinkle the top with cooked crispy bits of bacon.

This cookbook was printed in December, 2012 and later a completely revised edition was brought out in February, 2015.  This cookbook has 6 authors from the Low-Carbing Among Friends' team at the time.  Some of us remain and others have retired from the cookbook business.  It is wonderful to still have their recipes with us in this beautiful cookbook.  George, a professional chef, is a much-loved and a well-known figure in the low-carb world and yearly sells his cookbooks on QVC.  Not only that he used to have his own cooking show on the Food Network TV.  Stacey Crawford has written an amazing new cookbook for the Instant Pot, Peggy Hardaway has 2 LCAF's cookbooks devoted to her recipes.  Kent Altena is an IT expert and a great cook at home; his family-tested recipes are usually very low-carb and easy to follow.  Judy Barnes Baker, famous for Carb Wars and another cookbook has lovely recipes in this cookbook that you will enjoy.  Also, in this cookbook are featured several great recipes from our low-carb friends.  Dr. Parker wrote an article: Low-Carb Research Update and Dr. Su wrote: Why Can Carbohydrates Kill?
