One of my favorite side dishes or even just a meal is Avocado Salad. It’s a recipe that my mom made when I was growing up and amazingly I can still eat everything in it. During the great Detox of 2013 I ate a modified version of it, but I still fall back on my old favorite recipe copied from my mom’s memory.
I don’t know about you, but I always struggle for a side dish with tacos. I know tacos usually have pretty much everything wrapped up in the tortilla, but in my mind I should have an extra side or something. This is usually the recipe I use to fill that need.
Avocado Tomato Salad
1 lemon, juiced
1 t salt
1 T of olive oil (or more to taste)
1 T chopped onion, or 1 scallion (or more to taste)
Chop the onion and add to a medium bowl.
Cut open the avocado, remove the seed and remove the fruit. Chop into bite sized pieces and put into the bowl.
Cut open the tomato and cut into similar sized pieces and put into the bowl with the avocado & onion.
Squeeze the lemon over the bowl (if you don’t mind fishing seeds out!) or pour the lemon juice over the avocado and tomato.
Sprinkle the salt over everything. Add the oil. Mix and stir until combined.
Makes 4 side servings or 1 meal sized salad.
Can add other veggies such as peppers if desired.
