Simple Avocado Salad / Avocado Salad With Cilantro Lime Dressing

Avocado Salad Recipe
Today's recipe is simple and a healthy salad using Avocado. The avocado is an incredibly healthy food and loaded with important nutrients. It is often called “alligator pear,” which is very descriptive because it tends to be shaped like a pear and have green, bumpy skin… like an alligator. The yellow-green flesh inside the fruit is eaten, but the skin and seed are discarded. When compared to many other fruits, Avocados are high in healthy fat, fiber, anti oxidants and other nutrients and vitamins.
The regular intake of Avocado helps to lower the cholesterol and triglycerides. Also the fat in Avocados help you to absorb plant nutrients.

The avocado has become an incredibly popular food among health conscious individuals. It is often referred to as a super food/gold food. Not only healthy avocados are equally delicious and there are tons of recipes and method to prepare avocado. If interested, watch this video on how to pick, prepare and cook avocado. I am sharing one of the easiest and delicious salad recipe. I love avocado with lime, little salt and pepper. The tanginess from lime pairs well with the creamy avocados.
