All green summer salad
If you are anything like me , then you don’t really feel like cooking when the weather is hot and sunny. Recently I’m all like : honey let’s grill something 🙂 ! Which basically means that my hubby takes care of the grill and I’m taking care of the sides. Preparing this delicious crunchy yet creamy salad takes not more than couple of minutes. It’s all green , super healthy and really really good! You have the crunch from almonds and cucumbers, the kick from rucola salad and the green olives, and the creamy taste of ripe avocado. It’s perfect :). And served with the slightly sweet maple sirup dressing it made my toddler surprisingly enthusiastic :).
1 ripe avocado
1/4 cup green olives
1/4 cup sliced almonds
2 cups rucola
Avocado oil ( or olive oil)
1/2 tablespoon maple sirup
Juice from half a lime
Cut cucumber and avocado in to cubes. Cut olives in to slices. Place veggies and olives on arugula, sprinkle with almonds and add the dressing. If you don’t use avocado oil you may add a bit more of maple sirup.
Enjoy this delicious salad alone with bread or as a great side dish :).
So healthy! Looks amazing!
Thank you !
This salad is mouth-watering! I can’t wait to make it.
Thank you 🙂
Question: what is a rucola? i’m not sure we have it in Africa. Can you please show a picture of it so i know what you’re talking about? Wanna try this salad. Thanks.
Here is a link to Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eruca_sativa , there are many names, rucola or aragula , it’s crunchy and a bit spicy , but you can use any other crunchy one 🙂
