Avocado Salad

avocado saladThis avocado based salad is a great side dish for dinner. It’s fresh, light, and easy to make – and a great way to spruce up leftovers. I’ve kept it with just a handful of ingredients, to let the vegetables shine for how great they are.

avosalad2Ingredients:
3 medium avocados
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
juice of 2 small limes
1/4 teaspoon lime zest
1 medium red pepper, diced
1/2 medium red onion, sliced
salt and pepper, to taste

avosalad3In a small bowl combine the olive oil, lime juice, zest, and a bit of salt and pepper. Whisk together and place the diced red pepper and sliced onions in it. Allow to sit and marinade for at least a half hour, closer to an hour if possible.

When the peppers and onions are nearly done marinading, scoop out the avocado flesh and carefully slice them. Arrange the avocado slices with the pepper and onions on two plates. Serves 2. Enjoy!
