Avocado Salad with Cumin-Lime Dressing

After making this as a tossed salad, I recommend making individual salads on plates. Once this salad is tossed with dressing, it must be served immediately or it gets soggy. I also added some shredded carrot to liven up the appearance. The dressing was just yummy - sweet and tangy, creamy and spicy.

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Salt and pepper

4 cups salad greens, torn
1 ripe avocado, 1/4" dice
1/2 cup shredded carrot

Whisk together the olive oil, mayonnaise, lime juice, sugar and cumin; season with salt and pepper.
Arrange a cup of greens on each of four salad plates.
Top with the avocado pieces and shredded carrot.
Drizzle with dressing.
Serve immediately.

If you need to make this ahead - toss the avocado pieces in lime juice, then assemble the individual salads. Drizzle with dressing just before serving.

Serves: 4
