Simple Butter Lettuce & Avocado Salad

Simple salads are often the best salads. This recipe is no different. 

As always, choose the highest quality ingredients you can find, and the flavours will speak for themselves. Here, I used Gotham Greens butterhead lettuce, along with organic avocado and local, organic red onion. 

Serves 1. 

Ingredients

Around 2 cups of butter lettuce leaves

1/2 cup of thinly sliced red onion

1/2 an avocado, sliced

Extra virgin olive oil, around 2 tablespoons

1 tbs of fresh lime juice

Sea salt

Cracked pepper

Method

Prepare the dressing by combining the olive oil, lime juice, sliced onion and salt and pepper in a small bowl. Allow to sit for around 10 minutes before dressing the lettuce with the vinaigrette in a salad bowl. Toss to combine. 

 Arrange dressed lettuce on a plate and top with avocado. Drizzle with any remaining vinaigrette (or plain olive oil) and sprinkle with a little extra salt and pepper.
