Avocado/tomato/onion salad

avocado-tomato-onion salad

This was a lovely raw salad.

The first step was to soak sliced white onions in water to make them a bit less pungent. After a while, the onions were drained and mixed with chopped tomatoes and avocado.

The mixture was marinated in the following:

  • olive oil
  • lemon juice
  • rice vinegar
  • salt
  • pepper

You could also put a bit of sugar or honey if desired, but Yusuke opted out.

Yusuke noted that (as he learned from my mom), soaking avocado in lemon juice and/or vinegar helps it keep its colour and last longer.

He let the flavours percolate for about 30 minutes, but it could’ve gone longer (we were hungry). Very tangy, great with a meal of soup and fried rice (coming soon).
