Ingredients

Dressing

  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp granulated sugar, optional
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • Pinch salt

Salad

  • 3 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 2 cups chopped tomatoes
  • 3/4 cup chopped avocado (about 1 small avocado)
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions, green and white parts
  • 2 Tbsp chopped cilantro

Directions

  1. Whisk together all dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Place lettuce on a large platter. Arrange tomatoes and avocado over lettuce. Sprinkle with green onions and chopped cilantro.
  3. Drizzle dressing over salad and serve.

Notes

Don’t be tempted to toss this salad like a traditional mixed salad. Drizzling the dressing over the vibrantly colored tomato-avocado mix is essential to keep it looking fresh.
