As summer fast approaches, I’m eating more salads. The produce finally tastes less “wintery”, if that’s a thing, and the idea of eating crunchy veggies for days on end is more appealing as the weather heats up. One of my favourite all-time salads has only two ingredients……tomatoes and avocado. I could eat this every day if avocados weren’t so frustratingly exact about their time of ripeness!
1 ripe avocado, peeled, stone removed, and cut into chunks.
10 – 12 cherry tomatoes cut in half
Throw both of these into a bowl, squirt the avocado generously with lemon juice, add salt and mix. That’s it. You can add other things (cucumber, mint, pine nuts etc….), but the simple one is best, I think. You have to pretty much eat it right away, but don’t worry, there won’t be any left.
So, when I came across a Buzzfeed article on ways to introduce more avocado into your foods, I was all over it. I’m going to try a few of these this long weekend, I think. Do you have any favourites? Let us know in the comments….
