South-of-the-Border Iceberg Salad


  • 1/2 head of iceberg lettuce, chopped

  • 1 ripe mango, peeled and diced

  • 1 small red bell pepper, seeded and cut into thin strips

  • 1 ripe Hass avocado

  • 2 limes


In a salad bowl, combine the chopped iceberg, mango, red bell pepper and the remaining half of the onion. Cut all around ripe avocado lengthwise and down to the pit. Twist and separate the halved fruit. Remove the pit with a spoon then scoop the flesh out in one piece from both halves. Chop the avocado into bite-sized pieces and add them to the salad. Squeeze the juice of 2 limes over the salad and drizzle with about 3 tablespoons of EVOO. Season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat.


Get your juices flowing! To get lots of juice from your lemons and limes, heat them for 10 seconds on high in microwave before you juice them. When you are juicing lemons, remember to hold the cut-side-up so the pits remain with the lemon and not in your food.
