Avocado Carrot Shells

Since childhood, my mother gave a lot of importance to raw vegetables being an integral part of our meal. Kachumber/Salad meant a plate full of raw cucumbers, sliced tomatoes, and carrots sprinkled with some lemon juice and seasoned with salt and pepper.I tried to reinvent this by adding a few more ingredients and seasoning. After all the festive indulgence, what better than a salad to make your tummy feel better.And this healthy option is definitely tasty.


Avacado Carrot Shells

Ingredients

  • Carrots, sliced into small pieces
  • Avocado, mashed 
  • Cucumbers, cut into small pieces, 
  • Cherry tomatoes, halved 
  • Olives, halved
  • Sweet corn, boiled kernels
  • Lettuce, roughly chopped
  • Sesame Seeds
For the dressing
  • Olive oil
  • Honey
  • Salt and pepper
  • Mint leaves
  • Oregano


Method

  • Chop all the vegetables as instructed above and mix in a salad bowl.
  • In another bowl, add all the ingredients for the dressing. 
  • Refrigerate both separately and mix them only while serving. This will make sure the vegetables remain crunchy and do not leave water which is naturally present in them.
  • Add sesame seeds and mix the salad well.
  • Serve in the Avocado Shells. (This is the Avocado covering left after scooping the filling out)
You can use any vegetables as you like. A few options are kale leaves instead of lettuce, baby spinach, onion and Brussels sprouts.
It is a quick filler and a good option to replace the chips with. This recipe can also be made if you are Vegan
