Avocado Salad

We combine avocados and salad fixings with a lime vinaigrette for a delicious flavorful salad. This is wonderful contrasted with a salty fried latin main course or topped with cooked shrimp for a main course.

We start by putting the triple-washed lettuce into a large bowl. We add the cilantro and onion and then salt the chopped tomatoes and set them into a small bowl. We’ll add them to the salad with the vinaigrette.

In a resealable plastic container we combine the lime juice, cumin and garlic. We add some salt and pepper and stir well with a fork. Then we add the olive oil and set aside for a few minutes to blend the flavors.

When it is time to eat, we open the avocado and remove the pit with our knife. Then we peel and dice the avocado and add it to the salad. We shake the dressing and add some of it with the tomatoes. We toss gently with tongs, add more salt and pepper, and add a little more dressing until the leaves are well coated. We reserve the rest of the dressing in the fridge.

We serve the salad immediately sprinkled with some more salt and pepper.
