Very refreshing salad for World Tour 2006 - Mexico!!!
- 1 head lettuce, in leaves
- 1 1⁄2 avocados, cubed
- 130 g cottage cheese
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried garlic
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- In a big bowl cut the letuce in pieces by hand.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and mix them carefully!
This is an easy and delicous salad. We had it for lunch with some fresh bread and butter and it was perfect. I love avocado, so this one will be made again. Thanks for the terrific recipe!
Very light and refreshing for lunch. It's creamy and crunchy and a little tangy, too! Also great because it can be whipped up in just minutes. I think some chopped scallions would be fabulous in this salad. I'll try that sometime. Thanx for posting.
The combination of lettuce, avocado and cottage cheese works well and I agree with twissis that it makes a nice side dish to a Tex-Mex or Mexican meal. I served this as part of a meal with grilled corn and steak with chipotle butter. BF (who actually prepared the salad) doubled the dressing as he found the stated amount too dry with all the ingredients. He peppered the avocado first and I think maybe I would sprinkle the cream cheese with a little bit paprika before mixing it into the other ingredients another time. This would add taste and colour. I had some fresh coriander in the fridge (the Asia shop sells them in huge bunches) which I roughly chopped and added four or five tablespoon to the salad. The combo of lettuce, avocado and cottage cheese is nice, but as those ingredients are all rather bland the mixture can be improved by adding spices and herbs. Thank you for posting this salad, Katia.
