Avocado and Pineapple Salad
Our favourite BBQ accompaniments!
This tasty and tropical salad is a great side dish that uses ingredients like fresh pineapple, avocado, red onion and orange juice to create a perfect flavor combination.
Creamy avocados are major players when it comes to providing healthy, good-for-you fats and pineapple fruit is rich in vitamins, minerals and health benefiting proteolytic compound bromelain that digest food by breaking down protein.
Yield: Makes 6 to 8 servings
8 cups iceberg or other crisp lettuce
2 cups fresh pineapple chunks
1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/3 cup white vinegar
1/3 cup fresh orange juice
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 medium avocados, sliced
Fresh lime wedges
Toss together first 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk together oil and next 5 ingredients. Pour desired amount of dressing over salad mixture, and toss well. Spoon salad onto individual plates. Arrange avocado slices over salads; serve with lime wedges. Serve immediately.
Crunchy on the outside, creamy and nutty inside, these avocado fries are totally over the top.

Chilled Avocado Soup
Surprise! This rich, velvety avocado soup contains no cream or milk. Pureeing in the blender fills the mixture with air, making it thicker. Add more broth if you like a thinner consistency. It's delicious topped with the Crab-and-Mango Garnish or on its own.
