Today’s guest post is from Stacy – who must have been reading my mind! She’s bringing us a delightful summer salad that looks as delicious as it is nutritious. Be sure to stop by A Delightful Home to find more tantalizing and healthy recipes like this one.
Eating salad regularly is an excellent way to consume fresh vegetables, but it can be easy to fall into a salad rut and eat the same combination over and over again. This salad will help add some variety.
It’s light and fresh and would be perfect for lunch. It also serves well as a side dish.
Because this salad features avocado and olive oil you can rest assured that it provides some good healthy fats. These fats help you absorb all the other nutrients on your plate.
Avocado, Mango and Lime salad
1 head romaine lettuce
1 small green pepper
1 small red pepper
3 green onions or 1/3 of a red onion
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives
1/3 cup olive oil
¼ cup fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon dried tarragon
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh coriander
Black pepper to taste
Wash and tear lettuce leaves and place into a large bowl.
Chop the peppers and green onions finely and sprinkle over the lettuce.
Add the fresh herbs and lightly toss to combine.
Peel and chop the mango and avocado. Scatter these over the salad.
To make the dressing:
Place all ingredients in a glass jar and tightly close the lid. Shake the jar vigorously to combine.
Pour 1/3 of the dressing over the salad just before serving. Lightly toss the salad to distribute the dressing. Add more dressing if needed.
