Avocado salad

It’s detox day 3!

So far, so good. I mad a mega headache for the first day and a half and was very tired and sluggish feeling. Today I am back to my normal energy levels and am headache free. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how tasty and simple some of the recipes are.

Like my lunch today of this avocado salad, which is a close rendition of the detox recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • pinch of cayenne
  • coarse salt
  • 1 avocado, halved and seeded
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • thin slice of red onion, diced
  • 6 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro

In a small bowl, whisk together oil, lime juice, garlic, cayenne and coarse salt. Set aside.

In a larger bowl, combine the bell pepper, onion, tomatoes and cilantro. Scoop meat out of avocado halves and chop. Add to bowl and gently stir.

Drizzle with dressing. For a nicer presentation, scoop into avocado shells and serve.
