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.


  • 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.
  3. Add avocado and onion; mix slightly.
  4. Add lettuce and toss lightly.
  5. Garnish with tomatoes.
