Ingredients

For the dressing

For the salad

  • 1 large head romaine lettuce chopped (or other varieties of lettuce)
  • ½ lb tomatoes
  • 1 avocado cubed
  • ½ medium red onion sliced

Instructions

  • Mix together all ingredients needed for the dressing. Set aside.
  • Add all ingredients needed for the salad to a large bowl. Pour in dressing and mix until everything is well incorporated.
  • Give it a taste, adding more salt and pepper if needed. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

*Oil - I highly recommend using extra-virgin olive oil as it has the most flavor and aroma. However, you could use light olive oil, vegetable oil, or canola oil if you are not a fan of its taste. 
 
Helpful tips 
  • Wait until the salad is ready to serve before cutting the avocado to prevent it from browning. 
  • Mix salad gently to ensure that the delicate avocado cubes stay intact. 
  • Romaine lettuce avocado salad is best served immediately after preparation as lettuce will turn soggy after some time. 
  • Dressing can be prep ahead of time and will stay fresh in the fridge for up to a week. You could also chop the veggies and keep them in separate containers for 3-4 days. As for the avocado, it is best to slice them right before serving.
