Avocado Salad

I love to eat a salad with pizza to help balance the meal. I was browsing through the Cuban cook book and found this salad. I decided to serve it over a bed of mixed greens to bulk it up. I also added some cilantro to the dressing to tie in the flavors. It was very simple, yet refreshing!

Avocado Salad

4 c. mixed greens (added by me)
2 c. diced red pepper
2 c. avocado, sliced
½ c. red onion
Salt and pepper

½ c. EVOO
½ c. lime juice
½ tsp. cumin
1/4 c. cilantro (added by me)

Blend dressing ingredients. Set aside.
Arrange salad, pour on dressing.
