Avocado Salad

I have to apologize for the lack of posts. I honestly haven’t been cooking much lately. I seem to have slipped into some bout of cookers-block, nothing sounds appetizing. I should probably also mention that I’ve been a bit under the weather – and getting back to normal seems so far away.

Anyways, you’re not here to attend my pity-party, back to food. My palate has become a bit… bland. I’ve mostly been eating chickpeas, chicken breast, and salmon. However, one thing that I always love eating is avocado. My father-in-law whipped up some of this avocado dressing/salad and it has become a favorite around here. Think of it as a dressed-up-un-mashed guacamole. We’ve used it as a topping on salmon burgers, broiled salmon and hamburgers. It’s hard not to eat straight from the bowl!

Avocado Salad:
1 ripe avocado, peeled, seeded and cubed
1 tomato cubed
1 clove garlic minced
1 tbsp olive oil
dash of pepper
1/8-1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
5-6 chopped olives
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp basil or cilantro
1/4 tsp dijon mustard
Mix all ingredients together & serve.
