Avocado and PineappleĀ Salad

July 11, 2014


Author Notes: This summer salad is refreshing in its simplicity and quick prep time. It calls for a light simple dressing that doesn't overpower, to showcase the sweet tangyness of the pineapple and the creamy, mild nutiness of the avocado. Serve it on its own as a refreshing afternoon snack or with grilled meats for dinner.Silvia Nena
