Monday Munchies! Tossed Salad with Avocado and Lemon Dressing by EclecticArmadillo.

Oh, Happy Monday everyone!

If you love avocados like I do, but are tired of guacamole, this sounds incredible, and I can't wait to try it! This is my favorite day of the week, and not just because it's the end of my workweek, but I get to post an incredible recipe from one of Etsy's AWEteam members!  This week's Monday Munchies come to us from Sarah, of EclecticArmadillo! Read on and enjoy!  Should you happen to try it out, come back, post a comment telling us what you thought!  Even if you don't try it, you can still post a comment!  We love to hear from ya!

Sarah's Tossed Salad with Avocado and Lemon Dressing:

Salad Ingredients:
Romaine lettuce, celery stalks, purple cabbage- just enough to add color, onion or spring onions, tomato, peppers, carrots
(if I have zucchini, cucumber, and fresh herbs in the house I may include them. Chick peas or olives are  variations to use, as well as dried oregano)

Dressing ingredients:
Avocado, fresh lemon, salt & pepper to taste
Grated parmesan cheese
Wash and cut all the salad ingredients into the size you like. Place in a  bowl big enough to toss the salad.
For the dressing I usually dice the avocado while still in the skin, and scoop the pieces out into a small container. Add the fresh lemon juice, and mash thoroughly with a table fork. Add enough water to thin it to a pouring consistency.  Add salt & pepper to taste. Pour over the salad and toss. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese over the top. Serve and enjoy.

Sometimes I just dice the avocado and add it to the salad as part of the salad,  pour the lemon juice over it, add the cheese, and then toss it.

 Oh, that salad looks so yummy!  I can't wait to try it!

Treasury Challenge:
Each week I'm challenging AWEteam members to curate a Treasury on Etsy based on this week's recipe.  This week's challenge is :Eat Your Veggies".  What treasuries can you curate around this theme?  Be sure to add "aweteam treasury challenge" as a tag. You do not have to be a member of the AWEteam to participate in this challenge!   There are no prizes involved, just the great feeling you get when showcasing other Etstians! Well, your Treasury will be posted on this blog on Thursday!   Now get out there and Have fun!!



  1. ...just a little fyi...the peppers in this recipe are little sweet peppers. Do not use hot peppers!
