Leaner Avocado Wasabi Salad

Submitted by: COPPERHEAD71
Leaner Avocado Wasabi Salad

Introduction

This is a makeover of a recipe I found via Pinterest, I added some flavor and leaned down the dressing a bit. It's great by itself as an entree salad, or try it with my Baked Coconut Chicken Tender for a marriage of fresh flavors that burst on the palate.

Ingredients

    Salad:
    1 cup broccoli, chopped small
    2 tbsp raw, slivered almonds
    1 head romaine lettuce, outer leaves removed and remainder roughly chopped
    1 oz. fresh basil leaves, chopped
    1 medium carrot, shredded
    1 small red bell pepper, sliced julienne style
    1/2 cup garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed


    Dressing:
    1 small avocado, diced
    1 tbsp rice vinegar
    1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    3 tbsp nonfat, plain Greek yogurt
    1 tsp reduced sodium soy sauce
    1 tsp wasabi horseradish

Directions

Coat a skillet with nonstick olive oil cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Add the broccoli and saute until slightly brown and tender. Remove from heat and let cool in the refrigerator.

Heat a small skillet over medium heat and add the almonds - no need to spray the pan as the almonds will give off their own oils. Cook until the almonds have browned slightly then remove from heat.

Mix together the dressing ingredients, creaming the avocado until the dressing has the consistency of a thick ranch dressing.

In a salad bowl add the lettuce, basil, carrot, pepper and garbanzo beans in that order. Top with the cooled broccoli and almonds. Serve topped with the dressing.
