Courtesy of Nigella Lawson. She also included smoked salmon which is a delighful addition to this salad. The dressing is really tart but compliments everything very well and the seeds add a great crunch. You can also use lettuce leaves as a substitute. (If the dressing is too tart for your taste, feel free to add a little sugar or honey.) Enjoy!!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the spinach leaves and pumpkin seeds into a large salad bowl.
  2. Halve the avocados and then remove the stones. Spoon out the flesh over the salad leaves and pumpkin seeds.
  3. Mix the olive oil, lime juice, and zest in a small bowl. Add the salt and whisk to emulsify.
  4. Pour the dressing over the salad, and then gently toss everything together using your hands. Take care not to mush the avocado pieces.
  5. Serve this salad immediately as the spinach leaves are very delicate.
  6. If you are using the smoked salmon, add 1 slice per serving-drizzle with a little lime juice and top with a little cracked black pepper.
