 Source from The Huffington Post

We were already mesmerized by the romantic pairing of eggs and avocado. But the addition of the pecan (which boasts healthy, unsaturated fat and a bounty of antioxidants) really makes this dish magical.

Ingredients

For the Salad
    • 2 cups Baby Romaine Lettuce
    • 1 Avocado, sliced
    • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 egg
For the Salad Dressing
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ground fresh peppercorn (optional)

Instructions

  • In a salad bowl or plate, combine the lettuce, sliced avocado and pecans.
  • Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  • Break the egg and carefully place the egg in the heated olive oil without breaking the yolk.
  • Grab a large spoon, tilt the frying pan, and begin to baste the egg yolk with the olive oil by spooning the olive oil over the egg yolk until a white film appears.
  • Remove the egg with a slotted spoon, and place it on top of the salad.
  • In a separate mixing bowl combine all the ingredients for the salad dressing and whisk until thoroughly combined.
  • Pour over salad and garnish with ground fresh peppercorn.
  • Serve.
