Green Avocado Salad For Summer
What makes avocado a wonderful green salad addition?
Cooking avocado seems to be outlandish considering the wide array of nutrients present in its pristine and uncooked state. That is why, an avocado salad reminds one of a refreshing splash during summer. It is an invigorating treat that breaks the monotony of a hot summer day. It can easily blend with the other ingredients as it absorbs and complements other flavours being bland and buttery in taste and texture.
The best addition yet to infuse flavours to the sugarless, unsalted taste of the avocado are the herbs with all their unique gustatory dimensions, examples are cilantro, garlic, basil, dill, oregano, etc. A little spice will not hurt especially for chilli lovers. Some other fresh additions to make the avocado salad more summery and crisp would be tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, and other mixed salad greens. A trace of some sweetness like honey that is so natural is like pumping up the flavours of the avocado salad. Sweetness as well as texture may be infused with the addition of vibrant fruit wedges such as grapefruit, grapes apples, oranges, pomelo or whatever is available.
Perk up the flavour with some protein source from the sea- shrimps or prawns, crab meat, scallops, mussels, flaky fish; poultry-chicken, turkey; meat -pork, beef, veal; processed meats-sausages, bacon, hams. Enhance the taste more and render more character by throwing in some extras like, olives, anchovies or capers.
Unify the diversified ingredients so that harmony is created and tasted. Let the salad dressing bind the diverse ingredients to foster harmony and balance that can be judged only by a knowing taste bud. Simple salad dressings that will be healthy must be used like olive oil or definitely cheaper and even healthier, the avocado oil mixed with balsamic vinegar or lemon extract.
An avocado salad is just non specific having no mandatory ingredients that sometimes make it complicated. In the end, just remember to throw in whatever is available; just infuse balance, add in the freshness of avocado, and you will surely get something summery with fresh avocado salad.
