Additional Tips

  • For an extra burst of flavor, you can add thinly sliced red onion or shallots to the salad.
  • If you prefer a little heat, sprinkle some crushed red pepper flakes or add a few slices of jalapeño to the salad.
  • To make this salad a complete meal, consider adding grilled chicken, salmon, or tofu for an extra dose of protein.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. However, it’s best to add the avocado and dressing just before serving to maintain freshness.
