I will be using InLinkz random pick (am a foodie, love all the food posts!), which "... uses a well tested random algorithm to pick the number of the submitters requested on (1) as winners. The algorithm is as random as the one from the frequently used random.org." (quote lifted from their blog)
Since this is entirely new for me suggestions are very much welcome. :)
And now, let's continue with the Food Friday post for this week:
The avocado that I bought last Monday was finally ready! Ready for eating, that is...and since I no longer had some salad greens handy, I decided to mix it with what I had: apples and tomatoes. I call that .... uhmmmm ... apple-avocado-tomatoes salad? or AAT salad? or TAA salad? LOL. But whatever it's called, it's now in my 'Favorites List'.
It's really quite simple: halve the ripe (not overripe since it tends to be clingy when really ripe and doesn't hold it's shape) avocados, remove the big seed, remove the skin (I found out that it easily peels off when ripe) and cut into cubes. Next, prepare the apples...I usually remove the skins (am paranoid about the chemicals used, plus my youngest doesn't like eating the skin; if only i can find organically grown ones here!), and the seeds, then slice them into cubes...and next the tomatoes. It's the same: slice and cube. Or you can make any shapes you want. LOL. ;)
For the dressing, I usually make my own: evoo (extra virgin olive oil), dried dill tips, freshly ground black pepper, coarse salt, balsamic vinegar, lime juice (when it's available; if not, I use calamansi juice, but it doesn't taste as nice as the lime juice), granulated garlic, and sesame oil. This time, though, I decided to add chili flakes. I liked it! :)
I so love the the taste of the avocados mixed in with the sweet apples and the tangy tomatoes...plus that salad dressing....pure bliss! ♥
Preparing it was simple and fast enough. All I had to do was peel, cube, mix, mix, mix...and eat!
Done in less than half an hour (excluding the eating part, of course)! :D
I could have added some nuts to that ... and some salad greens, and mungbean sprouts. Next time.
Hopefully, I'll remember (LOL) to get some, when we go grocery shopping this weekend!
