Recipe: Avocado Salad

Sometimes a few ingredients can make an incredibly flavorful dish. As such, below is my spin on guacamole if you will. It is an incredibly easy and fast little salad that pairs well with fish or chicken, goes along with rice, and makes a nice addition to a sandwich. My secret ingredient here is toasted sesame oil which adds a nice touch of smoky flavor to this wonderfully bright and delightful dish.

Avocado Salad
Makes 2-3 servings

1 avocado
½ a small red onion
1 large tomato (or a handful of cherry tomatoes)
Juice of ½ a small lime
¼ cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
1 or 1 ½ tbsp toasted sesame oil
¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
Salt and pepper


Dice the first three ingredients and add to the bowl, then sprinkle with lime juice. Add cilantro, sesame oil, crushed red pepper flakes (if using), salt and pepper to taste. Gently mix the salad and enjoy!

*Note: If you are not a fan of cilantro, I find that parsley can be a good enough substitute and still add flavor and additional color to the dish.


  1. This looks so good! I'll have to try it.

  2. This not only looks good this taste very good. I tried!
