COMMENT

Serves 2 for lunch or 4 as a side.

This is something I have been doing a bit while avocados are cheap.  I use half an avocado instead of mayonnaise or yoghurt in a salad, delicious.

Ok, I admit the first time I made this, it was a random selection of what was in my fridge. I enjoyed it so much I’ve now made it once or twice a week. Easy to tweak the herbs according to what is available. Great way to use the ripe cheap avocados that are around right now. I froze alot of avocados a while back and while they didn’t go brown in the freezer, they didn’t thaw as well as I wanted to serve sliced, so this is a great way to use them, let them thaw for about 30 minutes then chop away!For the Christmas/summer/holiday season this is a great all in one chopped salad that will fill you up and keep you going until the next barbecue! As well as a great vegan salad to take to barbecues for the non meat eaters. Not too carby, healthy fats, lots of lovely plants. Make it chunky or a bit smoother depending on how much you want to hide the fact it’s RAW broccoli!

Enjoy – Kathryn.
