Guacamole Salad with Onion Crunch

Oh how I LOVE avocados.  They are super good for you too.  Half on a Hass avocado has around 150 calories, 5 grams of fiber and is full of beneficial fat!  This salad is super easy to make (it is still delicious without the Onion Crunch).. the combination of fresh basil and cilantro is a little unexpected and the two flavors compliment each other so well! I've been eating a lot of salad lately avocado is one of my favorite toppings!

Buffalo Chickpea Salad

Guacamole Salad 
serves 2

  • 1 large Has Avocado, medium chop
  • 1/2 small red onion, minced
  • 1 cucumber, medium chop
  • 2 roma tomatoes, medium chop
  • 1 jalapeno (take seeds out for less heat)

  • 1 tbsp fresh basil 
  • 3 tbsp Onion Crunch or french fried onions (optional)
Method: chop veggies and mix everything together in a bowl.  Allow mixture to sit for at least 15 minutes before serving. 

I was given this product to review and I will also be hosting a giveaway.  It's really yummy and I will have a full post about it coming up soon.
