Some Salads...

I bought this avocado last week thinking I would just throw this quick salad together. But when I sliced it open, I was taken aback at how perfect and beautiful it was. Being the blogger that I am, I was already picturing the post as I was slicing up the salad. So, for a change of pace, here are some salad recipes for you:

Chunky Avocado Salad
2-3 large avocados, just ripe
1 can hearts of palm
1 purple onion diced
1 plum tomato diced, or 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved

 Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Add 1 tablespoon mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. Stir gently. The bad news: Since avocados are notorious for turning brown when cut, its best to make this salad as close to serving as possible. The good news:since this salad takes about 6 minutes to make, that shouldn't be too much of a problem!

And here's one more salad for you. I love this recipe because of all the colors that are in it;
 it's literally a rainbow!

Health Salad

4 medium cucumbers, sliced thin
4 carrots,sliced thin or shredded
1 purple onion, sliced thin
1 green pepper, sliced thin
1 yellow pepper, sliced thin
1 red pepper, sliced thin
3/4 cup vinegar
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil or less
4 tbsp water
1 tbsp salt

Mix vinegar, sugar, oil, water and salt; pour over vegetables and mix. Let  marinate for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator before serving.
