This Avocado Corn Tomato Salad is a simple, no-lettuce salad made with healthy fats and a lime-cilantro dressing that makes a great side dish or a light lunch!
This past week was my first official week of working outside the home in over 7 years. Thankfully it went surprisingly well besides my youngest getting sick as well as myself. But it wouldn’t be normal if someone wasn’t sick in the middle of January, right?! We made it through the week and had a 3 day weekend to recover. Now don’t worry, I’ll still be blogging in my spare time (aka evenings & early mornings). And working this new part time job, in addition to blogging and being a full time wife and mom, I am even more determined on providing and sharing quick and healthy meals. So that of course is good news for you, my readers!
Now even though I’m a food blogger, I till often scour Pinterest for inspiration and ideas of new recipes to make. Of course a lot of my recipes on Chocolate Slopes are also inspired by friends, family and even restaurant food that I loved. Recently I purchased a few avocados on sale and thought I’d easily find a salad to make with them. Of course there are plenty of ideas on Pinterest which is where I found this recipe from Paula Deen, which I very closely followed for this recipe.
I’m glad I gave this recipe a try since it was definitely delicious and a great way to add some healthy fats to your diet!
Avocados often get quite the publicity in terms of its nutritional benefits and for good reason! One third of an avocado has only 80 calories, 3 grams of fiber and also uniquely has healthy fats too (1 gram of polyunsaturated and 5 grams of monounsaturated). Don’t forget that eating a balanced diet including healthy fats reduces your risk of heart disease and can help lower cholesterol levels.
