Last weekend, there was a pool hang out I was to go to. I wondered what I could possibly take to eat that would not be heavy, so I opted for a salad. It's the easiest thing to make.
- lemon juice
- black pepper
- coconut oil (I used this in the absence of olive oil and it worked perfectly!)
- 8 avocados
- 4 tomatoes
- 2 large cucumbers
Method of preparation
I prepared the dressing a night before...
- juice from one big juicy lemon
- quarter teaspoon of black pepper
- 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
Mix these three ingredients in a bowl and cover then leave overnight in a cool place. I wanted all the ingredients to marinate into each other instead of having the taste of each one stand out, especially the black pepper.
The next day, I chopped avocados, tomatoes and cucumbers into bite sizes then mixed them all up. I poured the dressing over, then put in the fridge.
The salad was a winner! Healthy and not heavy, everyone loved it. Apologies I didn't take photos of the dressing or the salad.
Feeling lazy, put this together, it is certainly one to try and it takes less than an hour to prepare!
