Yes, I have officially become infatuated with the fat.
Avocado has stolen the spotlight in the majority of my dishes–both sweet and savory–because of its its creaminess & versatility. It serves as a flavorful topper to a salad, a thick spread to a sandwich, a chunky dip with some chips, a creamy agent in a smoothie (with no added taste!), and a perfect pair with ripe tomatoes (with a sprinkle of sea salt).Forget about fearing the fat and focus on becoming infatuated.
Health Benefits of Avocados:

Monounsaturated fats aid in the absorption of antioxidants (lycopene and beta-carotene)

Usually I am not one to salt my food, but recently I have found myself caving because of my new find: Himalayan Pink Sea Salt. Yes, these salt crystals are pink in color.Pink salt is unrefined and contains more minerals compared to regular table salt. Just a little pinch adds a flavorful punch with a pretty, pink pigment.
The crystals added the perfect finishing touch to this salad!
