Avocado Salad

December 26, 2009

~ Mary ~



I figured your system might need a little cleansing after the holiday chow.  Don’t be surprised if you’re transported to warmer weather when you eat this salad.  We found it on our last trip to New York at the NYU quicky mart called Whole Planet.  It’s so simple to make, it’s so festive to look at and of course just too damn delicious to pass up.  It would make a great addition to any potluck or buffet.  Be sure to earmark this for the summer too.


It was a little tricky to get the slippery halves to stay put – I cheated by putting a paper towel underneath.   Funny thing – I went the grocery store to get cilantro so I could make this – I had everything but.  Then what did I do – forgot to add it for the photograph – not to worry though – it was included before we snarfed it down.




I used this recipe for Tomatillo Salsa and added diced

Red, Yellow and Orange peppers.


That’s it!

    This looks fantastic! What I wouldn’t do for some fresh veggies right now.

    (It’s just too cold and rainy to run to the store right now – lol)

      Hey Bill ~
      The recipe for tomatillo salsa is highlighted at the bottom – just click on it and you’ll be taken to the tomatillo salsa – that’s all it was, just avocado halves with the salsa poured/sprinkled over the top.
      Sorry for any confusion!
