Avocado Salad

19. September 2003 Vegetables + Salads 0

This is another salad I make when there are avocados for sale in my neighborhood supermarket. To make sure I buy ripe avocados, I look at the nubbin where the stem came from. If the avocado is ripe, the nubbin pushes right out with my thumb. The best way is to buy the avocados when they’re still a bit green and firm and ripen them at home for about a week.

1 bunch of spinach, washed thoroughly
2 ripe avocados, meat scooped out and sliced into small chunks
lemon juice
salt, pepper, olive oil

1. To make the dressing, whisk some olive oil in a salad bowl with lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.
2. Add spinach to the dressing and toss with avocado chunks.
