Dominican Avocado Salad

This Dominican Avocado Salad has no sugar – it’s low carb – and it comes together in no time. If you’d like to boost the protein content, serve it with some sliced chicken or baked fish on the top or on the side.

The recipe comes from Tiny House Cooking: 175+ Recipes Designed to Create Big Flavor in a Small Space, where each recipe has been designed to serve two.

The original recipe calls for using two bunches of watercress.  I was not able to find watercress at my local store so I substituted a pack of pre-cut salad mix in its place. The lettuce is tossed with a simple dressing and topped with tomato, red onion, and avocado.

How To Make Dominican Avocado Salad

To make this simple salad, you need the following ingredients:

  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1 medium lime
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed
  • 2 Tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 bunches watercress, large stems removed
  • 1 small ripe tomato, thinly sliced
  • 1 small red onion, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 small ripe Hass avocado

The first step is to make the dressing.  Combine the olive oil, lime juice, garlic, cilantro, oregano, salt, and pepper in a jar and shake well.

Next, place watercress on salad plates and top with the tomato, onion, and avocado. Drizzle the dressing on top of the salad.
