Ingredients Notes

Avocado: Avocados leave creaminess in the salad, so make sure their firmness. Squeeze the avocado to check its firmness; it’s ready to eat if it yields a bit. Perfectly ripe avocados give you the salad that you want.

Eggs: Take 2 eggs to add to the salad. Add as much as you want.

Olive Oil: Whisk the olive oil with fresh lime juice before adding the avocado and onions; it will give the salad a luxurious dressing.

Garlic: It may be an optional ingredient, as most people don’t like the taste of garlic. Still, I recommend adding garlic to make the salad a bit spicy.

Parsley: This green vegetable adds healthy and rich flavors; make sure to add fresh parsley to the salad.

Tomatoes: Tomatoes are the main ingredients of every salad. They add texture to the salad. If you have juicy tomatoes at home, then grab 150-gram cherry tomatoes.

Yellow Pepper: Colorful red or yellow bell peppers add spice and crunch to the salad. If you have both, that is perfect; you can add only one if you do not want to add too much pepper.

Lettuce Leaves: Lettuce leaves are a healthy vegetable. Go to the nearby grocery store and buy fresh, green lettuce leaves.

Fresh Herbs: Tenderize the recipe using fresh herbs like parsley, basil, and spinach. It is the finest savory ingredient in the recipe.

Apple Cider Vinegar: Use apple cider vinegar to add nip to the salad. It cuts the taste of rich flavor onions. To add flavors to the recipe, you can add them.

Onion: Spring onions are the best addition to the salad. Chop onions perfectly and add them to the salad for perfect flavor and complexity.

Feta Cheese: If you like cheesy salads, feta cheese will be perfect. 

Bavarian Mustard: To make the dressing thick and creamy, take 1 tablespoon of Bavarian mustard.

Balsamic Vinegar: Adding vinegar will enhance the sour and citrusy flavors of the salad.
