This is one of the first recipes I made during my time as a cooking instructor. So, as you can imagine I have a lot of love for this recipe. It brings back one of my favorite memories, and reminds me that even when we are nervous as hell, we can still accomplish great things.
The class was packed and and thankfully full of fun amazing people ready to laugh. They stood by me as I battled nerves, struggled with oven issues, and even tossed an avocado through the air as I was attempting to demonstrate how easy the avocado slicer worked! Thankfully my kitchen assistant for the night caught the avocado as it was flying through the air, and saved if for this incredible salad!
The combination of flavors and textures in this salad is what makes it incredible, not to mention the health properties. This salad works great as a side, or double the serving and have it as a meal.
The dressing is also an incredible base recipe with lots of combinations. Substitute the Greek yogurt for kefir for a little thinner dressing, or add in herbs for added flavor! Fresh parsley and a pinch of tarragon are my favorite additions!
