24 Days of Salads: Egg & Avocado

This. Was. The. Bomb.

I love avocado. As written in previous posts, it’s health benefits are amazing. Almost like its the most perfect food.
I’m yet to try it with maple syrup as recommended by a friend. 
Avo’s are versitile too- add to smoothies, cakes, sweet or savoury dishes & even to your skin & hair. They’re good for helping to lower cholesterol & high in the ‘good fats’ and omega 3 & potassium.
Tonight I made my version of curried egg- well with just the egg part- 
Egg & Avocado Salad

Start with a dollop of low fat mayonnaise, teaspoon of garlic & some pepper.

To this add a squirt of lemon juice & mix together.
Add two nearly hard boiled eggs & half an avocado.

Combine until all the egg is broken up & then top on a bed of your favourite salad greens. I went with a spinach & lettuce mix. I had some left over mung bean sprouts that I threw on top.
This was a creamy, semi warm (from the egg) salad & I devoured it pretty quick!


24 Days of Salad: Mediterranean Mix

Tonight’s salad consisted of a few handfuls of mixed green salad leaves & some marinated vegetables.

I was cooking the family some seafood so I added a few prawns to my mix of feta, olives, semi dried tomatoes & anchovies.

This was a really quick & easy dish to throw together & was a fresh, fuller meal than previous salad dishes. 
Salads are so versitile and easy, I’m looking forward to trialling some new ‘salad’ dishes. 

24 Days of Salad: Cranberry & Feta

So this salad was meant to be made with spinach but I only realised this as I tossed the last of the spinach to the guinea pigs. 

I scrounged up some coleslaw and added a handful of low fat feta diced, a handful of dried cranberries & two sliced spring onions. I drizzled some balsamic vinegar over the top too.
It combines sweet and salty flavours and perfect as a light meal. Next time I would as some raw almonds too.
