Avocado, courgette and tomato salad

We wanted to have a light dinner last night so we decided on a quick grilled salmon. While Salil got started on the salmon, I decided to make a side salad to go with it. I wasn't really a salad eater growing up but over the last few years I have been experimenting with different flavour combinations and pretty much eating salad with every meal. Not sure if this is because of me blogging about food or the farmers markets which arrange the fresh fruits and veg in the most tempting and alluring ways. Whatever it is, I know my mom must be very pleased. :)


1 Avocado
1 Courgette, peeled (optional) and chopped.
2 small tomatoes, chopped or a handful of cherry tomatoes, halved
1 small onion, sliced
A handful of coriander, chopped
Juice of 1/2 a lime
Salt and pepper


Preparing the Avocado - halve and stone the avocado. Using a knife, make square incisions and then scoop it out of the shell, using a spoon, to get pieces of avocado.

Add all the ingredients to a bowl. Squeeze in the lime juice, season with salt and pepper and toss.

This salad shouts summer in every bite! :)
