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! MORE + LESS -
