Avocado Spring Salad

What you need: 

2 cups spinach
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup mixed salad greens
1/2 cup purslane
1 tomato, finely diced
1/4 onion, finely diced
1 small garlic clove, finely diced
1 large avocado, seeded and peeled
2 tablespoons olive oil
Juice from 1 lime
10 to 12 almonds, crushed

What you do: 

1) Begin by preparing the spinach in a salad bowl, and then add in the shredded carrots, mix greens and purslane. Mix all of these ingredients well in the salad bowl, and set aside.
2) In a bowl mix the diced tomato, onion, and garlic with a large avocado. With a spoon or a small cup smash the ingredients into a nice purée. Add olive oil and lime juice and mix well with a fork or spoon.
3) Pour the finished purée over the previously prepared green salad, and finally add the crushed almonds. Mix and enjoy with fruit and water.
The Avocado Spring Salad is light, healthy and can be enjoyed for lunch.

I think it supposed to be 1/4 cup onions.


I prepared this dish for my raw Meetup Group twice. Everyone loved it. The only thing I didn't have is purslane (doesn't grow on Long Island)
