Chunky Avocado Salad

Chunky Avocado Salad

If you love guacamole as much as I do, you'll enjoy this guac-inspired salad that's perfect for a light lunch or midday snack.

1 small Haas avocado, ripe but firm
10 grape tomatoes, halved
1/2 small cerrano pepper, chopped
1/3 small white onion, diced
1/2 tbs olive oil
2-3 tbs fresh lemon juice
dash of sea salt
fresh cracked pepper (to taste)

Slice avocado in half, discard seed. Scoop out each half into bowl and cut into small pieces. Add tomatoes, cerrano pepper, and onions. In separate bowl, whisk lemon juice, olive oil,  sea salt and cracked pepper. Drizzle over salad and toss lightly with fork.

Enjoy over a bed of arugula, with sliced up baguettes...or with these crispy Wheat Thins Tuscan Herb flatbreads I'm addicted to (pictured above).
