Top Five Tips on How to Make Avocado Salad Amazing

  1. Save the best for last. Avocados can brown when exposed to the air, so let them be the last ingredient you add before serving to help keep them green for your presentation. Learn more about avocado storage.
  2. Sliced thinly or chopped? Avocados can be added in a variety of ways on salads. Chopped/cubed pieces work best in chunkier salads that include a lot of various textures, while avocado slices add flair to mainly leafy green salads. Get tips on how to cut avocados.
  3. Avocados can be used in your favorite creamy dressing recipes to not only make them smoother but also, they can be used as part of a reduced-calorie diet in place of other saturated fats.
  4. Avocados add more "wow" to any dish. When preparing salads for meals or as a vegetarian option at a dinner party, avocados can help make a plain green or pasta salad more substantial. Their rich texture moistens quinoa or bow tie pasta salads as well as adding good fats and nutrients to help make you feel satsified but not guilty.
  5. Use avocados to make food more engaging. Americans are encouraged to eat more fruits and vegetables because they contain a variety of essential nutrients. Eating more fruits and vegetables like avocados every day can help Americans meet their recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables. Avocados also help to make foods more colorful and dynamic in presentation with their bright green color. Learn more about the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
