Watermelon Radish & Avocado Salad

Avocado Salad

This Watermelon Radish & Avocado Salad is all-around crunchy, and creamy from the avocado, and has a tangy molasses vinaigrette.

Serve this salad with your favorite Mediterranean dinner or simply pack it for school or lunch.

I love crunchy, bitter watermelon radishes not only because they are gorgeous, but because they add crunch to any prepared salad. You can thin-slice it, dice it, or shred it. Today, we will dice them into small cute little cubes.

I like to dice all of the vegetables into the same size while making this salad. It will not only offer uniformity, but it will also allow you to obtain a small amount of each component in each mouthful.

Watermelon RadishAim for a medium-size radish. Peel the skin before giving it a small dice.
AvocadoI used a domestic avocado from Turkey, but if you can get your hands on a Hass avocado, I’d go for that.
OnionsIs going to add so much flavor. You may use red, white, or yellow onion.
Fresh herbsFeel free to use cilantro or parsley or a little bit of both.
CarrotsIt will add additional crunch and sweetness.
CucumberYou’ll want to use Persian cucumbers because of their thin skin (no need to peel) and tiny edible seeds. If you can only find an American cucumber, simply peel and remove the inner seeds.
For the DressingThe base is crafted with lemon, vinegar, honey, molasses, oregano, and buttery olive oil. Simple yet so tasty and fresh tasting!

This is the most crucial step. Getting a little bit of each ingredient into one generous bite is essential. Also, the bigger the pieces, the longer you’ll have to chew. 😬

Also, the dressing has a modest amount. Again, that’s to ensure that the salad doesn’t become too soggy and unpleasant.

Add the avocado right before serving or else you will be left with many brown avocado pieces.


How Long Does This Salad Last?

Feel free to store this salad in a container with a lid for no longer than 12 hours. I find that the cucumbers can tend to be less crunchy then and the avocados will brown.
