Fresh Argentinian Salad – “A Salad For Each Week” #18

20140320-080501.jpgSince breaking my wrist, I have not posted to my “A Salad for Each Week” series. Between being limited in my cutting and chopping abilities, my slow pecking – I mean typing!, and just lack of time due to the EXTRA time it took me to do everything else that had to be done, I just couldn’t get to these posts like I wanted to. BUT, it is back! Just a reminder, these salads are ones to make ahead and be able to eat off of for a few days. Embellish and substitute when desired!

This following recipe was created to go along side my slow cooker chimichurri pork loin. The main dish, pork roasted in a traditional sauce served in Argentina, along with the fresh fruits and veggies like you may find in their local markets, inspired its name. The name is a great way to impress those you are serving it to! Enjoy the freshness and coolness of this wonderful side…

Fresh Argentinian Salad

  • 2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil

  • 1/2 Lime, zested and juiced

  • 2-3 cloves of Garlic

  • 1 Tablespoon Rice Wine Vinegar

  • Dash of Salt and Pepper

  • 1 Cup Fresh Pineapple, chopped

  • 1 Cup Cucumber, chopped

  • 1 Cup Tomato, chopped

  • 1/4 Cup Red Onion, chopped

  • 1 Avocado, sliced

  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Cilantro

Whisk oil, lime juice and zest, garlic, S&P, and vinegar in a large bowl. Place chopped pineapple, cucumber, tomato, and onion into bowl. Gently fold fruit and veggies into the dressing. Toss in fresh cilantro and place sliced avocado alongside or on top of salad. Serve alone or on top of crisp, bibb lettuce leaves.
