Number of Servings: 8


    Avocado: 3 firm, but ripe pears, chopped
    Tomato: 1 Firm (meaty not juicy), chopped
    Garlic: 1 tsp crushed or 2 cloves, minced
    Onion: 1/2 cup finely diced or minced
    Lime: juice of 1 fresh, or tbsp of bottled
    Cilantro: 1/4 cup chopped very fine
    Salt: 1/4 tsp

    Canola Oil: 1/2 tsp or
    Golden Italian Salad Dressing: 1 tbsp
    (both @ same calorie& fat content)


Mix contents together in a glass bowl (preferably).

Chop your avocados up last and mix them in well.

The Lime juice, salt, and oil or salad dressing help to preserve the salad. If you leave out the oil or salad dressing, you also remove 9 calories & 1 g fat per serving. However, if you do so, add more lime juice to help keep the avacados from turning brown from air exposure. If they do begin to turn a bit brown, simply add a splash of lime and mix, and it will brighten again.

Cover the mix tightly with saran (keep it close to the surface of the salad to maintain brightness), refridgerate, and let stand for 1-4 hours .

  • This is a staple in my fridge through the summer for salads, dipping, and spreading on wraps and sandwiches. Great recipe! I never use the oil or dressing - it's perfect without it! :) - 8/2/09
