Guacamole Salad with Spicy Sunflower Seeds

I felt inspired this morning to combine the ingredients for guacamole: avocado, tomato, red onion, coriander and lime juice  with some mesclun/and or baby spinach leaves to make a healthy salad. A generous sprinkling of Tio Pablo Spicy Sunflower seeds roasted with Chilli and Lemon added a delicously  spicy and crunchy finish.

Ingredients: Serves Two

A handful of mesclun and/or baby spinach leaves
A handful of coriander leaves
1/2 red onion
8 cherry tomatoes
1-2 avocados
Juice of 1/2 lime
2-3  tablespoon of olive/avocado oil
1/4 cup ( or more to taste) of Tio Pablo Spicy Sunflower Seeds roasted with Chilli and Lemon


Slice the onion finely and soak in some cold water for 5 minutes to let the flavour mellow.
Cut the cherry tomatoes in half
Peel and slice the avocado.
Mix the mesclun/baby spinach and coriander leaves and line a salad bowl with them.
Arrange the red onion, cherry tomatoes and avocado on top.
Squeeze the lime juice over,
Drizzle with olive/avocado oil.
Just before serving ( so they retain their crunch) sprinkle on the spicy sunflower seeds.
