Avacado Salad

Avacado Salad

 

Ingredients:

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.

  1. I tried this recipe and it was so delicious and healthy. I love avocadoes and was looking for a perfect salad recipe, using avocadoes.This recipe is the best. I will definitely make this salad again. It is even great with Mexican food. Thank you for this wonderful recipe.

    1. Yes, I was wondering why no one recognized that! This is totally guacamole that hasn’t been smashed/blended. I bet it is very tasty, especially with Mexican food. 🙂

  2. I love Avocado! This looks yummy! I hope to try it out!! Is there any way to put up a nnew ice cream recipe that is totally hoemeade- except for milk….and things like that.

  3. Hi Adi,
    This is a accompniment for a meal. Also, servings will depend on the size of the avocado. An average size avocado will be perfect for 2-4 people.
    Enjoy!

  4. Hi Mercy,
    This salad uses lime juice as dressing ( a super tasty & healthy dressing), infact a most Indian salads use lime juice as a dressing! Also, most salads that are served with Indian food are an accompniment like chutney or pickles.

    Enjoy this great salad as a add-on to the meal.

  5. This recipe is brilliant.! I came across this one yesterday lunch time and I have already had 4 servings of it.!! absolutely brilliant taste. I splashed a bit of basil infused olive oil as well. Brilliant as a pita bread stuffing.

    Toast the a whole meal pita bead in bread toaster for 2 minutes/till it swells out. Pop it out. Use a knife o slit along one of the long edges. Spread some butter if you like. Then spread a layer of avacado salad.! A brilliant packed lunch idea.!
