Food Friday



16 shared thoughts

Something light this time... a salad of some sort. :P

Actually, it all started when I saw some avocados in the market... I bought three unripe ones and almost forgot about them until my youngest son saw them and started playing with one of the already-ripened-avocado. Yes, he banged it on the chair! :D That certainly got my attention!

So, I was left with thinking what to do with them...at home my mom normally would just mix them with sugar and milk and serve it as a dessert, but I wanted something different. My eldest son suggested I make a dip for the chips, but nah...I wanted something 'healthier'. LOL


Decided to add some tomatoes and cucumber to the sliced avocados...I wanted to add onions, too, but left that out since my youngest son isn't a fan of onions (the bulb). For the dressing, I used extra virgin olive oil, coconut vinegar, salt, freshly ground black pepper, dill and fresh spring onions. Sorry, I hardly ever measure anything..except when am baking (which rarely happens these days, lol).


Both my sons and I loved it (my youngest was hesitant about trying out the avocados; he happily ate the tomatoes and cucumbers, though)! :)

thanks, Lani
...we love it too...specially the youngest, he might now like the avocado much, but he loved dipping his tomatoes and cucumbers in the dressing! lol

thanks, Angi
...yup. we have to try eating healthy these days. on most days, i mean. LOL

thanks, LM
...LOL!!!!!!!
...same here, i never really was a fan of avocados until i read somewhere that eating them is healthy (even if they are fatty, daw). i never really liked mixing it with milk and sugar, like we did at home. i prefer my avocados served this way.... ;)
...will see if i can try applying them on my face, too. it is kind of expensive, though. :P

many thanks for playing again, ladies!
enjoy the rest of the week ♥

Avocado is love. I once did an avocado pudding, mashed avocado and cocoa powder. The kids love it!

My post is not really for FF. Sorry, so busy these days which start at 4am now that school days are here again.

Happy Friday!
