The Low FODMAP diet is designed to help people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and/or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) figure out which foods are problematic and which foods reduce symptoms.



  1. Salad greens should be washed and dried before being torn into bite-size pieces. Place in a bowl, cover, and keep refrigerated until ready to use.
  2. Remove the skin from the bacon and chop it into 14-inch (6 mm) pieces. Cook until brown in a pan with clarified butter or a butter-oil combination. Using paper towels, absorb any excess liquid.
  3. Prepare the croutons
  4. To make the dressing, whisk together the vinegar and olive oil, then stir in the chopped herbs and season with salt and freshly ground pepper.
  5. Remove the pit from the avocado and cut it in half. Peel the onion and dice it into 12-inch (12-mm) cubes.
  6. Toss the salad greens with just enough dressing to make them shine before serving. Toss in the heated, crisp croutons and chopped avocado. Gently toss the salad and distribute it among six dishes.
  7. Reheat the bacon in a hot pan with a splash of olive oil until crisp and brown, then distribute it over the salad. If desired, garnish with walnut halves.
