Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, mix all salad ingredients and taste to adjust seasoning. Serve.

*To grill an avocado, cut in half and remove seed. Drizzle with fresh lime or lemon juice and brush lightly with olive oil. Gently place cut side down on grill over hot coals for 2-3 minutes.

Serving Suggestion: Enjoy the salad on its own or use to top grilled chicken, fish or shrimp. It’s easy to vary the recipe with other fresh summer fruit such as nectarines or plums.

Beverage Pairing: Bright and citrusy sauvignon blanc.

** Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
