Avocado Salad

This refreshing salad is out of the ordinary and makes a good accompaniment to spicy meals. To select a ripe avocado, purchase a hard one. Allow to ripen unrefrigerated 2-5 days until it yields to some finger pressure all over, but never as much as a ripe peach.

Recipe Ingredients

1 medium or 2 small avocados

Salt and pepper, to taste, about 1 teaspoon each

2 tablespoons lime juice

1/4 cup regular or light mayonnaise

1/2 cup chopped onion

2 cups chopped iceberg lettuce

Cherry tomatoes or tomato wedges


  1. Peel avocados and cut into 1-inch cubes.
  2. In a salad bowl, mix salt, pepper, lime juice and mayonnaise. Add avocado and onion; mix slightly. Add lettuce and toss lightly.
  3. Garnish with tomatoes.
