Avocado Salad – Healthy & fast recipe

avocado salad

One more delicious fresh avocado salad before summer ends!
Avocado got my attention these last few years, as it is not a common fruit in Italy (botanically is a large berry).
But, like me, you will fall in love with him from the first try.

The avocado is cultivated in tropical and Mediterranean climates and can be used in so many different recipes.
Here you will find another easy recipe, healthy and perfect for children and adults.
Once you try this you’ll be making it all the time! I know it will be my go-to summer salad.

But if you don’t like spinach, or you wish to change a bit this salad, you can replace them with kale, arugula, romaine, or even spring mix.
As Thomas Keller says:

A recipe has no soul. You, as the cook, must bring soul to the recipe.
