Avocado, anyone?

I really like avocado, I can take it in any form, fresh, mash in salad, bake in a cake or just pour the condensed milk over it, yummy. I like the soft texture of the avocado and its mild taste (my sister tease me that I like baby food when I mash and eat the avocado). Avocado is very good for our health too because of its monounsaturated fat to helps fighting heart disease (raise the levels of HDL “good cholesterol”, prevent cancer and keep eyes healthy, it’s so good). So, today how about the avocado salad, that’s fresh and so good to your health.

Guacamole Salad
Serves 4

Little gem lettuces (or 2 baby cos) 4
Ox heart or vine ripened tomatoes (sliced) 3
Small onion (finely chopped) ½
Garlic clove (crushed) 1
Coriander leaves 1 tbs
Ripe avocados (flesh sliced) 4
Lime, (halved) 1
Dried chili flakes 4 pinches
Semi-dried tomatoes in oil
drained, oil reserved 100 g

Separate the lettuce leaves and divide among plates. Divide the tomatoes slices among plates, then scatter over the chopped onion, crushed garlic and coriander leaves. Arrange the avocado slices on top and squeeze over the lime juice to prevent them from turning brown. Sprinkle each salad with a pinch of chili flakes, then season. Scatter with the semi-dried tomatoes drizzling over about 1 teaspoon of the reserved oil.
