A good avocado salad goes beyond just our love for a good guacamole. Slice it, mash it or serve them in half, a good avocado adds soft yet firm textures with creamy finishes. Add some of this good fat into your salad recipes and you won’t regret it!
For most of us, our first encounter with avocado would undoubtedly have been in a guacamole. Scooping up a serve of a well made guacamole involves crunchy tortilla or corn chips, which in itself is so delicious!
The second mass encounter of an avocado would be the ever so trendy and popular smashed avocado on toast. Once thought to be such a hipster menu item has lasted the test of time and whether you care to admit it or not, you don’t mind a good smashed avocado for brunch.
Touted as the good fat, avocado has taken the world by storm. Adding them as an ingredient into our salads is the perfect way to enjoy the fruit in a different way.
Slice it thinly, cubed them up or simply just peel them and add them as a half, they will all add that delicious creaminess salad recipes sometimes need.
This compilation of avocado salads will have you admiring the creativity behind the pairing of flavours and how it is presented. Bet you won’t look at avocados the same way anymore!
