Quick and easy Avocado and Olive salad
"I never have time to cook but I also want to eat healthy!! I ran across this recipe that is a quick and easy lunch for me to make. It tastes great and its easy to make!" - From Infinity Health and Wellness Blogger - Shantee Tyler
It has only five ingredients—anyone can make it! The other day, a friend told me that many guys want to go raw, but have a hard time finding simple recipes with easy-to-find ingredients. Let’s face it—only a few of us use Irish Moss, and how many more even know what it is? This salad is a pretty hefty, but refreshing dish complete with two fats—from the avocados and olives. While it makes a good side dish, I’ve had it as a complete meal many times, especially when there wasn’t much time to prepare anything. I have a section in my website called “Da Power-Five,” featuring meals using only five ingredients, so no more excuses to be deliciously healthy! Prep Time: 5 minutes Yield: 1-2 servings
1 cup cucumbers, cubed
1 cup tomatoes, cubed
1 cup avocados, cubed
1 cup olives, cubed
1 tablespoon olive oil *Optional black pepper
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and serve. Note: If you are not going to eat this salad right away, save the avocado until last so it doesn’t turn brown.
