Green Salad Recipe with Avocado + Pistachios
by Kate + Adam Reinard
1 small cucumber
1 green pear
2 stalks celery
1/4 cup pistachios
1/4 cup fresh basil
1 cup shelled edamame beans
juice of 1-2 limes
2 Tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Chop the scallions, cucumber, pear, celery, avocado, pistachios and basil and combine in a large bowl.
Mix in the edamame bean then dress the salad with the juice from the lime(s), olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.
Enjoy! Leftovers will keep in the refrigerator until the next day.
A side note on this one. This green salad recipe is absolutely divine as is. However, I would use 1/2 cup of pistachios the next time around to ensure I get a pistachio in every bite as the nuts add a fantastic flavor zing to this dish.
