avocado salad recipe – a simple, light side dish for the summers, made with avocado and yogurt. i could have called this recipe an avocado raita. but since i have actually made a dressing and used less amount of yogurt, i will call it avocado salad with yogurt dressing. however the yogurt dressing is optional. but it does add a lot of flavor.

avocado salad recipe

the yogurt dressing is lightly spiced. apart from avocado, i have also added onion, tomato and cucumber. the avocado salad goes very well as a side dish with a vegetarian meal or appetizers.

what you get is a creamy avocado salad with the smoothness of the avocado, crunch of the cucumber, onion, tomato and a hint of the spices.

whenever i buy avocado, i mostly end up making guacamole and the guacamole toast sandwich. sometimes i make raita or just add the avocado to salads. and on some rare occasions an avocado milkshake.
