Last Wednesday I received a case of fresh avocados from California Avocados. They arrived beautifully at my doorstep and I couldn’t wait to get started on some delicious avocado eats. Of course I love to eat them right out of the peel, but with so many were perfectly ripe (and/or ripened in a day or two), I had to get to work and quickly.
I had a lot of fun ideas, including Meal Makeover Moms‘ Avocado Banana Frosty*. But since I was ready for some lunch, I decided to start with a simple and tasty salad. The spring onions would really help boost the flavor of the natural, whole ingredients I was using. In fact — the salad is only really four ingredients (avocado, tomato, spring onion and lemon juice). *I made the frosty for a yummy snack for my girls later that day.
Avocado, Tomato and Spring Onion Salad
- 3 Avocados, medium
- 3 Tomatoes, medium
- ½ Spring onion, finely chopped (or to taste)
- ½ lemon, squeezed
- Pinch of sea salt (optional)
- Pepper (optional)
- Chopped avocado and tomatoes into small squares.
- Add finely chopped spring onion.
- Squeeze lemon juice and add seasonings.
- Toss well.
My girls don’t always get a chance to assist with the meals I prepare, but they often enjoy the way I plate it up. Whether or not they assist in the process, they are often perfect little tasters for my eats. Here they are serving up my salad:
Disclaimer: Although I was not monetarily compensated for this post, I did receive a full case of avocados to enjoy and test out some avocado-inspired recipes. While I did receive free product, my opinion of avocado remains unchanged. I truly do love this fruit!
