Fanned Avocado Salad

Fanned Avocado Salad Recipe

Earthy spinach, crunchy cucumber, fragrant tomatoes, and sharp feta complement the creamy richness of avocado in this attractive salad. A slightly spicy lemon-lime dressing takes it from simple to sensational.





Serves: 6

Serving Size: 1/2 cup

Prep Time: 20 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon red hot-pepper sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  • 18 medium spinach leaves
  • 1/2 medium cucumber, peeled and sliced
  • 1 medium tomato, sliced crosswise and halved
  • 1 medium avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 ounce fat-free feta cheese, crumbled


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients.
  2. On a platter, decoratively arrange the spinach, cucumber, tomato, and avocado like a fan or an accordion. Pour the dressing over all. Sprinkle with the cilantro and feta. Serve immediately for peak flavor and so the spinach doesn’t wilt.
