This Avocado Pasta Salad is heavy on the avocados, which I think is always a good thing!
You not only have avocado in the salad itself but you are getting even more in the salad dressing…nice. Make sure you add the lime juice to both the salad and the dressing. Besides adding a zesty taste it will prevent the avocados from turning dark.
Also, when you are tossing the diced avocado in the salad, be gentle to avoid mashing them.
I think this salad would be great for lunch with your favorite sandwich or even on its own.
Add this to your list of delicious and healthy salads to try soon. Enjoy!
