Avocados with Strawberry Dressing Recipe

(Low Carbohydrate Recipe)

Ingredients:  Serves 4

115 g strawberries, rinsed, dried and hulled

2 level tablespoons low-fat natural yogurt

Freshly ground black pepper

1 large orange, peel and pith removed, segments freed of membranes and cut into small pieces

85 g cucumber, diced

Seeds from 4 green cardamom pods, crushed

1 tablespoon raspberry vinegar

2 ripe avocados

Curly endive, lamb's lettuce, watercress and mint sprigs to garnish

 

Method:

Blend the strawberries and yogurt in a food processor, or pass the fruit through a nylon sieve and whisk into the yogurt.  Season with pepper.  Mix the orange, cucumber, crushed cardamom and vinegar.  Halve the avocados and remove the stones.  Arrange the halves on serving plates and surround with the endive, lamb's lettuce and watercress.  Fill the avocados with the orange mixture.  Spoon on a little of the strawberry dressing and garnish with the mint sprigs.  Serve the rest of the dressing separately.

 

Note: Fresh orange and cool cucumber, spiked with cardamom and raspberry vinegar, are bathed in a smooth strawberry dressing to make an unusual filling for buttery avocado.

 

To ensure that each avocado half remains steady on the serving plate, cut a thin sliver from its rounded side.
