Do you know that Avocado trees can live 400 (or more!) years?
Avocados are usually thought of as a delicious way to get in more healthy fats... I mean, hello guacamole, right?
But they’re also loaded with fiber, magnesium, folate, and potassium. Plus, they’ve got lots of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories.
All of that leads to a long list of possible health benefits, including lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels, lower blood pressure, better heart and gut health, and fewer vision problems related to aging.
Make the dressing: In a medium bowl, whisk the lime juice, zest, a pinch or two each of salt, and pepper. Taste and adjust seasonings.
Add the avocado and gently stir to coat with the lime mixture, being careful not to “mash” it. Then add the remaining ingredients and gently stir again.
Serve over salad greens.
