Avocado salad

I have mentioned in my previous posts that I love salads as a side or as a snack. So today I decided to try the avocado salad.

My avocado salad was so simple. All I need was:

– A bag of mixed leaf salad
– A selection of green olives and kalamata with feta, and
– An avocado.

The mixed leaf salad bag comes washed but I always insist on washing it again. So I washed the mixed leaves, cut the avocado, added few olives, kalamata and feta, and sprinkled some salt and lime.
