Avocado Pistachio Salad with My Favorite Dressing

Everyone has a food that they could eat every single day and never get sick of it. Well mine is this salad. It's easy, sweet, salty, tart, creamy, crunchy, healthy, and fresh all in one!



Avocado Tips

To store half:  Keep the pit inside that half and wrap tightly in foil to keep it from browning.  You can also keep avocados from browning using lemon or lime juice.


To select the best avocado: Choose according to when you plan to eat it.  Within the next day or two- pick one that is slightly soft to the touch.  In a couple of days- grab one that is firm and let it sit on the countertop to ripen.  To stop an avocado from ripening, put it in the refrigerator.  Avocados are very versatile because you can control their ripening using your countertop and refrigerator.
