REALLY Good Avocado Salad

Posted on July 18, 2018 with 0 comments

We had avocados.

The garden was overflowing with young greens.

I had chickpeas.

I had some mixed grated cheeses.

I had kalamata olives.

And it was hot.


I made a vinaigrette in the bowl:  vinegar, salt, pepper, mustard.  In went chopped avocados, olives, chickpeas, as well as the cheeses.

Then, just before adding the greens, I decided to do some lily-gilding.

I rinsed, drained, and dried some capers... and fried them in hot EVOO until crisp and slightly browned.  I dried them on paper towels...

I tossed the greens in the bowl with the chickpeas et al., plated the salad, garnished with the capers...

And WOW!  That was a great salad!  I’m really happy summer is here!
