Tomatoes, cucumbers, onions and avocados with a zesty lemon mustard dressing.
Give your Mediterranean Salad a boost of flavour and nutrients with fresh, diced avocados. As you may know, I love avocados. Whether they’re diced in a salad, puréed in a pasta sauce, or baked in a cake, avocados always add a flavour and texture that truly adds to any dish.
Not only are they incredibly delicious, avocados are also super healthy. Rich in fibre, vitamins and nutrients, avocados are one of the healthiest fruits. When you add them to a Mediterranean Salad it adds a rich texture and flavour that perfectly compliments sweet tomatoes, crisp cucumbers, crunchy onions and fresh parsley.
Avocado Mediterranean Salad is a light and healthy salad, with a zesty fat free dressing. Made without any oil, this dressing is a combination of lemon juice, Dijon mustard, garlic powder, salt and pepper. The overall flavour tastes like a delicate lemon sauce. Dijon mustard adds a rich and slightly sharp flavour, while the garlic, salt and pepper amplify the natural flavours of the fruits and veggies in the salad.
There’s no need to add any cream or oil to this dressing. When the lemon dressing is mixed with the fruit and veggies, the natural juices mix with the sauce. Together, the flavours lightly thin the sauce and combine to create a truly tasty flavour. With all of the richness in the avocados, you won’t miss the oil in this healthy dish.
