I have making this salad almost twice a week. We love avocados- well, my husband and I do. I usually make guacamole a lot and we enjoy it with fish, chicken or any other Mexican cuisine. Since we love avocados so much, I now incorporate them into a simple salad. Some mixed greens, halved cherry tomatoes and a delicious dressing.
The dressing in this salad is the star- I used fresh lemons, honey and extra virgin olive oil. The main ingredients that make this dressing amazing is roasted cumin seeds and smoked paprika. I think I need to make a big jar of it as I find myself licking the plate after the salad is done.
Definitely try this salad- it is delicious…
- 4 cups mixed greens
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
- 2 ripe avocadoes, cut into 1 inch pieces
Place the greens, tomatoes and avocado pieces into a medium salad bowl.
- 1 teaspoon roasted cumin seeds, crushed
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- Juice of two lemons
- 2 to 3 teaspoons honey
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
Add the cumin seeds, lemon juice, honey, paprika and salt into a small bowl. Slowly drizzle the olive oil until the dressing emulsifies. Check for seasonings and drizzle over the salad. Toss and serve.
