What does avocado pair well with?
Avocado goes great with some fresh cracked black pepper, salt and black sesame seeds. Pairing it with leafy greens such as kale, romaine lettuce and rocket really helps accentuate the creaminess of the avocado.
Avocado has quite a rich taste and goes well with complementary tangy flavours, like tomato and bell pepper.
Benefits of avocado and tomato pairing
Other that the fantastic flavour combination, consuming avocado with tomato boosts the absorption of lycopene by 5x.
Lycopene is an antioxidant which provides sun protection, as well as being beneficial for heart health.
How to keep avocados fresh
Avocados tend to tarnish, similar to bananas, you can prolong the life of the cut avocado with olive oil and lemon juice.
The citric acid in the lemon juice helps to prevent browning as it provides antioxidants to what is essentially, oxidisation.
How long does it last in the fridge?
Chopped avocado can last up to 3-4 days in the fridge. Granted that you keep it in an airtight container and ensure it gets a good coating of lemon juice to help prevent browning.
This vegan avocado salad is easy to make, tasty and a powerhouse of nutrients. I personally like it as a light lunch or a nutritious post-workout salad.
