Asian Avocado Salad


Asian Avocado Salad - a simple and filling snack or side by

Yes, I realize this probably shouldn’t count as a “salad” considering I don’t use any greens – but technically, an avocado is green. Although I suppose if we’re being technical… an avocado is also a berry.

Whatever, I’m still calling this a salad. An Asian avocado salad.

When I was in high school, I used to spend a lot of time at my mom’s salon. Next door to her shop was a sushi restaurant and at least once a week, I’d pop in and order an avocado salad. For $5, they’d give me half of a beautifully sliced avocado with delicious peanut dressing drizzled on top. It was the perfect side to my sushi.

It’s been years since I had that overpriced avocado salad. I’m actually not even sure if it’s still on the menu.

Some people reminisce about past events. I reminisce about food that I used to eat. So naturally, I decided to recreate the Asian dressing. I’ve tried this with peanut butter, sunbutter and almond butter (several times) – they’re all delicious.

What I love about this Asian avocado salad is how simple it is to make. Truthfully (and obviously), this is probably more of a recipe for Asian-inspired dressing than it is a salad… so double or triple the recipe and keep it in your fridge for when you’re hungry and an avocado salad craving strikes.

    This looks delicious and I’ll have to give it a try. When we make “salads” with avocados, we like to mix in some wasabi. It goes well with sushi that way as well!
