Healthful recipes from The Oaks at Ojai by Christine Denney

Avocado and Vegetable Salad is a more healthful guacamole served at the Oaks. Ojai is avocado and citrus-rich.  Guacamole is always a favorite.  Here’s a healthful take, incorporating more nutrition and fewer calories and a lot less fat.  At The Oaks, this salad can also be paired with crisp jicama triangles– or corn chips we bake with corn tortillas, no fat or salt added.

Ingredients:

  • 1 avocado, diced very finely
  • 3 T. of each of the following vegetables, finely diced carrots, jicama, green olives, tomato, red bell pepper
  • 2 T. minced red or green onion
  • 2 T. minced cilantro (or parsley)
  • 1 t. minced garlic
  • 1 T. fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 1 T. olive oil

Directions:

Combine all of the vegetables, garlic, juice and oil before folding gently into the avocado.  Use as a garnish for a chicken or tuna salad or center it in a pile of greens.

Makes approx. 2 ½ cups  Serving Size: ½ cup    Number of servings:  5  Calories:  125
