Notes about this recipe

    Along with melissabazley, we are also not fans of cooked avocado - now and again it is okay, but we agreed raw was the way to go for this salad. The salad is okay. I thought the scotch bonnets added an interesting and different kick to our normal slice of red chilli - I'd not sliced them raw before, so that I will be doing again. The rest was a bit boring and not all that healthy with the dressing, cheese, pinenuts and tortilla chips - although it didn't ever claim to be that!

    I like to make variations of this salad when I have both tortilla chips and avocados in the house. You can toss in any greens you like, or substitute lime for the lemon. The pumpkin seeds and pine nuts help make it a complete meal if you just want something light.

    My thoughts on cooked should NEVER happen !! I believe God created it to be eaten raw !!! In saying that, this is still a good salad. It's quick & tasty & healthy. I didn't cook the avocados, instead I dressed them with oil, salt, pepper and ground cumin. For my taste, MUCH better :) The rest of the recipe I followed, except I didn't have any cress. I used a mix of fresh mint, parsley, coriander and rocket/arugula. The lemon dressing adds a fantastic tang and brings it all together. A delicious salad which would go really well with Mexican main dishes.
