Avocados with a Red Chili Dressing

We spent a lovely day by the pool today. I got inspired to make some refreshing and light side dishes to accompany our barbeque lunch.

  • 2 medium Hass Avocados, peeled and sliced neatly lengthways
  • 2 medium red chili peppers of your choice, seeded and minced
  • ½ tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt, to taste
  • Freshly cracked black pepper

Mix the garlic, minced peppers, lemon juice and olive oil until well-combined. Toss the avocado gently with the dressing. Serve sprinkled with salt and freshly cracked black pepper.


Tomato & Sumac Salad

  • 1 cup finely diced tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp finely diced white onions
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Sumac (Lebanese tangy spice) now widely available
  • Salt, to taste

Mix all the ingredients together and serve! TOO EASY!
