On those summer afternoons when the air conditioner can’t quite cut the heat, the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven or stove. Smoothies are cool and refreshing, but sometimes you want something different. This salad with creamy avocado and crisp bell peppers keeps you satisfied and is easy to make.
Summertime Avocado Salad
Salt and black pepper, to taste
Mix together the vegetables until just combined, being careful not to overmix. The creaminess of the avocado will coat everything, but you still want to keep a few chunks unlike guacamole. Add lemon juice, salt and pepper, and mix again. Serve on top of toast or crackers.
Feel free to sprinkle some grated carrot and/or nutritional yeast on top, and enjoy!
