Super chunky deconstructed guacamole salad with avocado, tomatoes and a lime dressing. Serve as a healthy side or top with grilled protein for a meal-sized salad.
Let me start by saying that I love love love guacamole. The one thing I don’t love is eating a bazillion chips. Okay, I do actually enjoy eating a bazillion chips, but usually I feel blah if I eat too many. And let’s be honest, it’s insanely difficult to stop eating chips once you start.
Have you ever been to a Mexican restaurant and eaten so many chips with salsa that you’re not even hungry when you’re meal comes out? If so, you get it! Chips are addictive.
That’s where this deconstructed guacamole salad comes in. There are no chips needed so you can feel good about eating it any time you please and don’t have to worry about getting caught in a can’t stop, won’t stop moment with those tortilla chips.
Of course, this deconstructed guacamole has similar ingredients to traditional guac, but we’re keeping everything in chunks instead of mashing it all together so it’s easier to eat with a fork and feels more like a traditional salad than a dip.
I must say… the lime dressing totally makes this salad! It adds the citrus, salty component that all good guacamole has and makes the salad insanely delicious. I could literally eat it every day. If only I had an endless supply of avocados.
Of course, this salad is no sub for regular guac and chips, but it’s great as a healthy appetizer or side dish with a Mexican-themed meal. It can also work as a healthy lunch/dinner entrée when paired with a protein like grilled chicken, shrimp, tofu or tempeh. I bet it would be delicious served with these sheet pan shrimp fajitas.
