Artichoke & Avocado Salad

IMG_2803 (2)The Day 2 Dinner recipe I made from The22DayRevolution is Artichoke, Tomato and Avocado Salad. The ingredients listed in the book are:

  • 1 box grape tomatoes
  • Haas avocado
  • 1 BPA-free can artichoke hearts
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp Kalamata olives
  • Dash paprika

I used chopped-up plum tomatoes because that is what I had at the time I made the salad. Instead of the olives I used olive oil and mixed it with lemon from my tree. If you have fresh artichokes, use them rather than the canned ones. Lastly, I garnished the dish with fresh basil from my herb garden. This was an easy, basic recipe that makes 2-3 servings. Thumb up on this one!

  1. Beatriz, you really do make some green stuff look very appetizing! I want to take an extra minute here on Christmas Day to tell you I have enjoyed contact with you. You always have a new slant on something that I have always though dull, or you bring out brand new stuff for me to consider. I like that either way. Have a blessed 2016. Merry Christmas!

    • Basil likes direct sun & heat. Water the soil, not the leaves, and let it dry out between watering. If you can create these conditions inside, perhaps using a grow-light, you may be able to grow it.
