Dine-In: Avocado Salad


Avocados are on a great sale this week at Brookshire’s, but you can only eat so much guacamole, right? What else do you do with avocados?

My absolute favorite dish is an avocado salad. Add a bit of cheese and it’s a vegetarian main course, or serve it along with whatever else you’re whipping up this weekend.

But wow, there’s something special about an avocado, isn’t there?? Creamy and rich, yet full of heart-healthy monosaturated fats—you just can’t lose!

Avocado Salad with Cilantro-Lime Dressing
Serves 4

Prep time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:
1/2 cup cilantro, finely chopped
2 Tbs lime juice
2 Tbs Food Club honey
3 Tbs Food Club olive oil
2 avocados, peeled, pitted and chunked
1/2 medium red onion, chopped
1 pint (16 oz.) cherry tomatoes, leave whole

Directions:
Place cilantro, lime juice and honey in a blender. Take off blender top and while mixing, pour in olive oil from top to create a smooth dressing. Set aside.

Combine the avocados, onion and tomato in a bowl. Gently stir in the dressing. Serve on individual plates, a platter or even mounded in the original avocado shell. Garnish with additional cilantro, if desired.
