Tasty Tuesday: Simple Green Salad




Hello again! So sorry about my late post today but I was a bit busy all day. We went to visit our good friends this evening to bring them some dinner and meet their new, precious baby girl. She was so sweet! Anyway, I wanted to share with you all a simple green salad I made the other night when we had our friends over for dinner. I loved the way the creamy avocado mixed with the goat cheese, and the crunch of the almonds gave it a nice touch. I hope you enjoy this simple recipe.


Simple Green Salad

 

 Ingredients:

  • 2 hearts of romaine lettuce, chopped thin
  • 1/2 an English cucumber, cut into small pieces 
  • 1/2 cup of crumbled goat cheese
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • the juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup of sliced almonds
  • simple vinaigrette dressing (recipe here)

 

 Directions:

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Toast your almonds until sightly browned and fragrant. Set on a plate to cool. Cut all your veggies and put it into a large bowl. Add the lime juice to the avocado to prevent from browning. Add the goat cheese and the toasted almonds to the bowl. Toss with the dressing, serve, and enjoy!
