Avocado-Cashew Salad (P, KLP)
Source: Unknown
Serves: 4

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 medium ripe tomato, large dice
1/2 cup red onion, large dice
1 cup broccoli florets, blanched
2 heads (about 3 cups) Bibb lettuce
1/8 cup mayonnaise
1 large ripe avocado
3/4 cup cashews, more if you like

Mix oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Add diced tomatoes, onion, and broccoli.

Mix and let vegetables marinate at least a half-hour.

Put vegetables in a larger bowl, reserving the marinade, along with torn lettuce.

Add to the reserved marinade, mayonnaise, and most of the avocado, saving a few slices for the top of your salad.

Mash avocado mixture, it should be like a thick dressing.

When you are ready to eat, toss avocado dressing with greens and add cashews, blend well and serve.
