Had a crazy day yesterday fitting in too much and I ended up arriving home late for lunch with no idea what to prepare - all I had was this desire to use a perfect avocado sitting on my kitchen bench... Here's the pic and recipe for what I came up with. Very few ingredients but packed with flavour and zing!. Big thumbs up for this one.

Green Salad

Prepare the following salad ingredients in a mixing bowl

Baby cos lettuce leaves
Chopped (unpeeled) green apple
Lebanese Cucumber - quartered lengthway then chopped
Blanched almonds, brazil nuts, & macadamia nuts (raw & unsalted of course)
Generous handful of mixed sunflower seeds and pepita seeds

Drizzle the dressing over the salad, then place salad on plates.
Top salad on plates with 2 slices of cold rare, lean roast beef slices per person.
Top with guacamole. Yumm!


Mix together flax seed oil, apple cidar vinegar, seeded mustard. Use oil to vinegar ratio of 1:3. I always have a jar of this in the fridge and sometimes top it up with lemon juice.


1 large avocado
Few grape tomatoes
Juice of 1/2 a lime
Fresh coriander leaves
1 shallot
Pulse together briefly in food processor - keep chunky.
Some wish for it, others work for it!
