Avocado and Agave Salad

Avocado Honey SaladI’m not going to lie, I did somewhat steal this recipe from another website (I thought it was from the New York Times and was going to link to the original, but I can’t seem to find it anywhere anymore). However, I did significantly simplify it since the original recipe had all sorts of ingredients that made it seem much more complicated and I didn’t think were necessary. This salad is truly delicious, easily one of the best salads I’ve ever eaten in my life – and also very healthy and simple to make. The dressing is so tasty it can even be used as a dip!

Avocado Cream Salad 1Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 tbsp agave syrup
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • a bunch of simple lettuce (any kind of simple lettuce you use will do)
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped small

Avocado Cream Salad 2Preparation (15 minutes)

Put the avocado, agave syrup, olive oil, salt, and pepper into a blender and blend until smooth. You may need to add some water if it seems to thick to pour and mix properly into the salad (this will depend on what kind of honey you use and how ripe the avocado is). Chop up the lettuce, add the onion, mix it together, and add the avocado and honey dressing. Mix it together and serve! You can, of course, add more stuff to the salad, such as olives or tomatoes – but I find that the dressing is so delicious I wouldn’t want to obscure the taste.
