Avocado and Strawberry Salad
150 – 250g strawberries
1 tspn onion juice (use a little onion in a garlic press)
4 Tblspn walnut or hazelnut oil
1 Tblspn parsley, finely chopped
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Peel and halve the avocados, remove stones, slice thinly, and arrange on a bed of salad leaves.
Squeeze lemon juice over the avocados.
Hull and halve or quarter the strawberries and arrange with the avocados.
Make the dressing by mixing the onion juice with the walnut or hazelnut oil, and the salt and pepper. Pour the dressing over the avocado and strawberries. Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.
If your avocados are riper and likely to mash somewhat, cube both the avocado and strawberries, mix in a bowl, sprinkle over the lemon juice, salt and pepper. Mix the onion juice with the oil and seasoning, and pour over. Add the parsley, mix briefly and serve immediately.
