Avocado and Almond Salad

With a conscious effort to include salads in my daily diet, I have been trying different variations regularly.

My new salad is a quick nutty salad for a nutritious early morning boost. With creamy textures, this salad makes for a perfect healthy start to your day. With ingredients that are easily available in your home pantry, mix up a bowl of this salad in less than 10 minutes. Can be enjoyed by children too as it has mild flavors. This recipe also gives us a chance to use Almond Oil in cooking, which is rarely heard of.
