Zesty Avocado Salad

My very own creation and the only salad I like 😀

Ideal for summer BBQs
Ideal for roast dinners
Ideal for light lunches
Ideal for weight watchers

It is not some ordinary boring salad. Very flavoursome and zesty, the combination of mint and lemon in dressing is outclass and the sweetness of grape tomatoes and subtlety of avocados make it fun and tempting to eat.
