Avocado-Plum Salad
Author: Danielle Joy
Prep time: 15 mins
Total time: 15 mins
Ingredients
  • 2 plums (+- 1 cup), chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 2.5 oz baby spring mix
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • ½ tablespoon maple syrup
  • ½ tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 avocado, chopped into bite-sized pieces and sprinkled with salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons red onion, minced*
Instructions
  1. Start by chopping up the avocado into bite-sized pieces and sprinkling it with some salt and pepper to taste. Let it sit while you prepare the rest of the salad so the salt and pepper can really "sink in".
  2. Tear the leaves of the spring mix into small pieces.
  3. Make the dressing: Mix together the coconut oil, maple syrup, and lemon juice.
  4. Gently massage the dressing into the salad leaves. (Remember: TLC!)
  5. Add the avocado, plums, and red onion to the salad and mix carefully but well.
  6. Take small bites, savor the flavors, and enjoy to the fullest!
Notes
*If you want to tone down the pungency of the onion, soak the minced onion in a bowl of water for 5 - 10 minutes before draining and adding it to the salad.
