Just because I am not a salad kind of guy, doesn't mean I don't eat salads. I actually enjoy them very much. It's just not the first thing that I turn to when there's meat nearby (or on my mind).
With that said, I came across Lizzie Fuhr's mouth-watering salad that you eat out of an avocado! Looking at the photo, it's hard to believe that what you see is an entire meal. To get more protein, I'd simply add chicken or turkey.
Juice of one lime
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1 pinch cayenne
1/4 cup yellow bell pepper, diced
1/4 cup baby tomatoes, sliced
3 radishes, diced
1 avocado, halved and seeded
1 tablespoon cotija cheese
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
1 tablespoon scallion, chopped
Combine lime juice, cayenne, and garlic in a small bowl. Add yellow bell pepper, tomatoes, and radishes to the bowl, and mix well.
Set up your halved avocado on a plate, and scoop out extra flesh if necessary. Spoon your pepper and tomato salad mixture into the center of the avocado. Garnish with crumbled cotija cheese, scallions, and cilantro.
And like I said, add chicken or beef to get more substantial protein intake with this meal.
