Goan Avocado Salad

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by oloschiavo

I guess this is just a glorified chunky guacamole, but my, it is good. Served at Tabla Bread Bar and featuring in the 2006 Saveur 100, this is an adaptation of a recipe by Melissa Clark via Yoga Journal. You can serve this over mixed greens as a salad, with pita bread as a dip, with any Goan-style curry as a side dish, or any other way you can dream up. It's highly versatile. Cooking time includes time sitting in the fridge (the salad, not the chef).
