This Avocado Summer Salad is a healthy side dish full of vegetables and packed with nutrition. It’s a delicious, easy recipe!
There are so many ways to enjoy avocados. From avocado deviled eggs to quinoa salad and breakfast bowls, you can’t go wrong with this delicious fruit.
In addition to being delicious, avocados are a nutritional powerhouse with nearly 20 vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients in a one-ounce serving. Their creaminess makes them a great substitute for mayonnaise in dressings and dips.
My favorite way to eat avocados is in a salad, and this avocado summer salad is a great example. Whenever I eat a salad that doesn’t include avocado, I’m a little disappointed. Their soft, creamy texture complements the crunchier elements of a typical salad.
This avocado summer salad is a unique, healthy summer side dish that will hold up well at your next barbecue. The lemon juice in the dressing helps the avocados to maintain their green color.
Full of fresh corn, cherry tomatoes, crunchy bell peppers and cucumbers, this salad is bursting with flavor.
