This Easy-No Bake- Mediterranean Salad Stuffed Avocado is the perfect summer solution to a quick Dairy Free and Low Carb meal!!!
All the wonderful Mediterranean flavors get mixed together in a bowl and combined with a little bit of the avocado mixed within, creates a luscious creamy combo all scooped into the avocado as the bowl!
Summer is always about easy meals in my house. I don't want to be in the kitchen for long. In and out and let's go play! So when I think of being quick in the kitchen, salads are my Go-To of course! Salads are perfect for hot summer days and this easy salad with simple ingredients is no exception!
Having company and not sure what to make? Headed to a BBQ with friends? Just at home and not feeling like cooking?
Whip this up in literally minutes! Add some cooked chicken or shrimp if you like and you're ready for the day or night ahead!
We recently moved to the country so we don't have a garden yet as we used to in our previous home. The nearest gas station or market is about 20 minutes away. Forgetting ingredients when I go to the store with a list, is usually how I roll unfortunately. I end up making a new list after coming home from the market, no lie!
Fresh herbs are usually not something I always have on hand. Or I have them on hand and they pretty much go bad before I can use them all up. So that's I love Gourmet Garden Stir-in-Pastes! They keep for a long time in your veggie drawer in the fridge and it's always like having fresh herbs in my food!
Enjoy this easy salad any day of the week!
