I’m not sure how much less complicated this recipe could be to prepare and it’s a fresh, delicious salad that will pair perfectly with whatever you main meal for lunch or dinner is going to be. Avocados are low in saturated fat, free of trans fat and cholesterol and contain fats with healthy benefits: mono- and polyunsaturated fats. I stumbled across this recipe in June 2013 online from Cuisine at Home’s eRecipes.
4 ripe avocados, diced
1 cup mined scallions
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Fresh lime juice and salt to taste (I used the juice from one lime in preparing the salad. Not only does the fresh lime juice provide great flavoring, it will help stop the diced avocado from oxidizing and browning; That being said, this is the kind of salad you need to fix and serve the same day.)
Dice the avocados and place in medium sized bowl.
Mince or finely chop one cup of scallions (this took about two bunches of scallions for me to get one cup; if you end up with less or more minced, it’s not a big deal.)
Chop half a cup of fresh cilantro.
Add the scallions and cilantro to the avocado and gently mix together.
Season the salad with lime juice and salt to your taste.
Serve when still fresh!
