The recipe is Ina’s; the photo is mine!
Looking for a quick, easy dish to take to a Fourth of July party today? This is it! You can whip it up in about 10 minutes, and although it might taste better if it sits for a bit, you can serve it right away. And because it has no mayo, you don’t need to worry about it sitting at room temp for a few hours. Perfect for a potluck, barbeque or picnic! Plus, it’s just chock full of healthy stuff, and has no sugar in the dressing!
The recipe is from Ina Garten, and although she calls it “Guacamole Salad,” I think of it as avocado salad.
I do make a few minor tweaks. Being the spice wimp I am, I leave out the jalapeno and cut back on the cayenne. But I also add in some chopped cilantro. And after making it the first time, I think I’ll double the avocado next time.
It’s so yummy, I could eat it straight out of the bowl. For lunch. And I have!
