Expert Tips

If you don’t have any fresh tomatoes on hand, use a can of roasted Muir Glen™ tomatoes instead.

Always add the avocado before serving to preserve the fresh color.

Directions

  • 1 In a large container, mix the tomatoes, carrot, cucumber, alfalfa and arugula.
  • 2 In a separate, small container, mix the olive oil and vinegar and dress the salad with this mix. Stir and add black pepper, to taste.
  • 3 Add the avocado to finish the salad. Serve and enjoy!

I like to combine seasonal ingredients for each meal whenever possible. Something I always have on hand, that I never tire of, is salad. In general, whenever I prepare a salad, I leave a few ingredients ready for the next toss: for example, I shred the whole carrot and set aside, chop the tomatoes and wash all the lettuce. That way, the next time I want salad, I just have to mix all the ingredients and serve. Avocado salad is a delicious version. I love to combine this fruit with tomato or cucumbers. Try it out for yourself and enjoy!
