Avocado vegan salad

Avocado vegan salad is a delicious fresh side dish. Rich in minerals and vitamins (not to be confused with the Valeriana officinalis), Valerian is one of the key ingredients of this dish avocado vegan salad. When it is not in season, you can replace it with other vegetables, although its taste matches perfectly with avocado.

Since I discovered that one of the major growers and exporters of avocado in Europe is Sicilian, and that his company is not far from my house, I admit to consuming avocadoes with a lot more enthusiasm. Rich in unsaturated fats and omega-3, avocado stimulates the production of good cholesterol (HDL) and improve bad levels of  cholesterol (LDL). Avocado is also rich in Vitamin A and E, powerful antioxidants which help against aging skin. Its Vitamin D content helps the body absorb calcium and phosphorus.

I think the avocado is perfect with a little seasoning but you can enrich the salad with dried fruit, although I recommend this version in the colder months because it is a very nutritious combination.
