Avocado and Tomato Salad

Anyone who knows me knows that I have a love for salads and a love for avocado. I got the love for salads from my mom and the love of avocado from my Auntie Tam. I haven't tried this recipe yet, but it has rave reviews and I can't wait to rush to the store so I can make it.
6 slices bacon
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
3 drops red pepper sauce
2 medium avocados, cubed
2 medium tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 small onion, chopped (1/4 cup)
4 to 6 cups salad greens in bite-size pieces

Cook bacon in 10-inch skillet over medium heat, turning occasionally, until crisp; drain and crumble. Mix oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and red pepper sauce. Pour over avocados in medium bowl; toss. Stir in bacon, tomatoes and onion. Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours.
Just before serving, place on salad greens, using slotted spoon.
