Avocado Salad With Lime Red Onions Tabasco And Coriander
I had an avocado that really had to be eaten, so I made it into a salad and ate it instead of vegetables with my lunch. 🙂
And avocados are super healthy and not fattening either.
1 peeled and chopped avocado
1/2 a lime, juiced
1/2 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 small red onion, finely diced
Some roughly chopped coriander leaves
2-3 drops of Tabasco sauce
Place avocado in a bowl and spoon over about a tablespoon of lime juice, then toss it gently to coat.
Add the oil, onion and coriander.
Add Tabasco sauce to taste.
Season with salt and pepper and toss gently to combine.
Let stand for five minutes.
Then really enjoy the great tastes!

And No They Aren’t Fattening!
An average size one contains 160 calories, 2 grams of protein and 15 grams of healthy fats.
And although it contains 9 grams of carbs, 7 of those are fiber so there are only 2 “net” carbs, making this a low-carb friendly plant food.
Avocados do not contain any cholesterol or sodium, and are low in saturated fat.
