Here you can find 5 different recipes for a light avocado salad and choose your favorite.

Avocados. That one word is a sentence all by itself! It’s one of my favorite foods and always a “crowd-pleaser” at get-togethers and barbecues. And as far as health benefits are concerned, there are not too many fruits that come close to matching the nutritional value, as it has nearly 20 vitamins and minerals.

Besides tossing them in salads and/or spreading them on burger/sandwich buns this Memorial Day, try these quick & easy avocado salad recipe ideas that you and your guests will love.

NOTE: These are recipe ideas and include the ingredients I used with only 1 large avocado. Therefore, you will need to tweak each recipe to increase the serving size and simply season to taste – and customize – with the spices and condiments listed below each recipe. The only ingredients I caution you to be too liberal on are extra virgin olive oil and organic, raw honey. Lastly, it is NOT necessary to stuff the avocado. Just eat the salads.

The first recipe is for simple avocado salad lovers. This one is made from cucumbers, tomatoes, feta cheese, cilantro, onions and of course avocado. Just chop and toss in all ingredients to a bowl and mix together. It’s that easy to make cucumber, tomato & avocado salad.

The following recipe is a creamy avocado salad. It contains cooked quinoa macaroni and goat cheese. Simple, yet refreshing and delicious. Be sure to try this recipe.

If you have never tried guacamole, now is the time. For the guacamole recipe, you need to mash the avocado with a fork and mix it with the other ingredients. This creamy tex-mex guacamole salad is a perfect addition to many dishes.

A salad that is especially refreshing and light is avocado, carrot salad with mixed green. In addition to avocados, this salad also includes chopped mixed greens, shredded carrots, onions and mango. Add your favorite low-calorie vinaigrette, olive oil, and season to taste. It’s a perfect summer avocado salad.

Choose a salad that suits your taste and make it. Be sure to share your experience with us and let us know how you liked it.
