Preparation for cucumber tomato avocado salad

  1. To prepare Indian style avocado salad recipe | cucumber tomato avocado salad | healthy avocado salad | how to make tasty avocado salad  cut an 1 avocado in halves. Also, discard any bruised, browned areas from the avocado. Buy avocados that are ripe and avoid using over-riped avocados that are mushy on the inside.

For the dressing of cucumber tomato avocado salad

  1. To prepare the dressing for healthy avocado salad, in a small bowl take honey. I personally love using organic honey which is naturally extracted, nice and thick in consistency.
  2. Add lemon juice. Lemon will punch in the acidity required to balance the sweetness from honey and prevent browning and oxidation of avocado salad. It can be substituted with vinegar.
  3. Add finely chopped mint leaves for a refreshing flavour. Mint and tomato increase the folic acid and vitamin A content of this avocado salad recipe.
  4. Add salt.
  5. Add the black pepper to taste. Adding salt enhances other flavors so season the dressing well. We are not adding chilli flakes, paprika powder, chilli powder or finely chopped green chillies for heat. We want the avocado salad to get the required heat from pepper powder so, ensure you ground it fresh to extract maximum flavor.
  6. Mix all ingredients of tasty avocado salad well and keep aside.

Perfect healthy salad. Avacados are healthy and are high in good fats. I skipped the baby corn in the recipe to make it healthy. Toss in some flax seeds and pumpkin seeds to top it off.
