Comfort Salad

I love comfort food. Relying on food to soothe or enhance my emotions is one of my ongoing struggles. I hope to someday conquer it. In the meantime I try to find healthy recipes that feel like comfort food to me.

Avocado Tomato Salad is one of my current favorites. The avocado is creamy, the tomato, lime juice, and salt make it super-flavorful, and it totally satisfies me. I also love knowing that the avocado and tomato have tons of disease-preventing nutrients and heart-healthy fat. You could serve this over a bed of greens for a bigger salad.

Avocado Tomato Salad (Makes 1 lunch-size serving)
1 tomato
1 avocado
Lime Juice

1. Dice the tomato and avocado and combine in a bowl
2. Drizzle with EVOO
3. Add lime Juice and Salt to taste. Start with just a little of each and keep adding until it tastes just right.

Wow all that good looking food makes me hungry!

I am going to try your salad and green smoothy! I have some spinach just sitting in my fridge begging to become a shake!

Thanks for the great ideas!
