Chopped Avocado, Cucumber and Beet Salad

3 WWPP Posted by 3 years ago 0 Comments

I made this twice last week, once with leftover roasted beets and a second time (because I liked it so much) with a can of beets.  It’s such a simple salad but so satisfying in a fresh way. The creaminess of the avocado paired with crispness of cucumber and the earthiness of beets really creates the perfect bite.

I love that all the textures are so different! All they needed was a simple dressing to bring them together, and mustard was perfect!

Of course I’m the only one in my house that would eat something like this but whatever, it was yummy. I just have to figure out other ways to get avocado and beets in those boys.

Chopped Avocado Cucumber and Beet saladHere’s what I did…

  • 1 tbsp honey (21g)
  • 1 tbsp grainy dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 avocado cut, in chunks
  • 250 g of cooked or canned beets chopped (net beets from 15 oz can)
  • 1 small cucumber, chopped

Whisk the honey, mustard, lemon juice and salt in large bowl.

(This isn’t an overly dressed salad; if you are more of a dressing person, double the honey, mustard and lemon juice. 1 tablespoon of each is just enough to slightly coat everything without being overbearing.)

Add the avocado, beets and cucumber.

Toss.

Voila!

I usually eat half in a sitting. When I measured the entire recipe, it works out to almost exactly 3 cups so I decided to count it that way for nutritional information purposes.  It does refrigerate well but the beets will stain everything.
