Avocado is perhaps one of the most delicious and nutritious fruits you will ever come across. Usually, they are used to make tasty smoothies and guacamole dips, but sometimes just mixing avocado slices or cubes into a green leafy salad can make for a delectable and wholesome meal. Creamy chunks of well-ripened avocados complement very well with the crunchiness of the green leafy vegetables and cucumbers, making this variant of the salad a healthy, easy-to-make homemade lunch option for many.

How to make Avocado Salad?

In this particular version of the salad, avocados, boiled eggs, green leafy vegetables (like kale, spinach or lettuce) and cucumbers are tossed together in a bowl with olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper for seasoning. The recipe can, however, be customized as per your preference. Some people prefer to ditch the lemon juice for low -fat yogurt. You can also add other condiments like paprika, oregano, basil or a sauce of your choice.
