Avacado Salad

Avocado – 1, ripe

Tomato – 1 med, diced

Green Onions – 3 stalks, finely chopped

Green Chili – 1 or to taste, finely chopped

Cilantro – 5 sprigs, finely chopped

Roasted Cumin Powder – ½ tsp

Black Pepper Powder – ¼ tsp

Salt – to taste

Lime/Lemon Juice – to taste

 

Method:

1. Peel and cut the Avocado into cubes and set aside.

2. In a bowl, mix the following well– Green Onions, Tomatoes, Cilantro, Cumin Powder, Black pepper powder, Green chilies.

3. Add in the Salt and Lemon/Lime Juice and mix again.

4. Gently mix in the diced Avocado, being very careful not to mash it.

5. Serves 4.

 

Tips:

  1. If you have time, store in refrigerator for a half hour to chill and to let the onions and tomatoes marinate in the juices.
  2. The shelf life of a peeled avocado is not very good, so make sure you finish the salad in a day or so.
  3. If available, use cherry or grape tomatoes. They add to the color and hold up better in salads.
