If you’re looking for an easy, healthy and vegetarian salad, this one meets all three criteria. If you’re lucky, you can get the avocado for 50 – 90 cents at Superstore, making it for a very cheap salad too! The secret is the vinaigrette: always get a good quality balsamic vinegar (I recommend the ones from Lina’s Market). And always mix the vinaigrette in advance, letting it rest for at least 5 – 10 minutes before using it.
6-10 cherry tomatoes
a handful of green salad mix (baby spinach, italian mix etc.)
1 green onion
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp honey (optional)
1 tsp soy sauce (or a pinch of salt)
pinch of pepper
1 tsp dried or fresh parsley (or thyme)
- Mix the vinaigrette sauce in a separate bowl: add the oil, the vinegar, the soy sauce (or salt), the pepper and the parsley and mix well. Add the green onion, cut into small pieces.
- In a salad bowl, put the salad greens, add the tomatoes cut in half, and the avocado cut into small cubes.
- Add the vinaigrette and mix well.
- Give the salad 10-15 minutes, then eat it with crackers or with naan bread.
