How to Make Avocado, Strawberry, and Mozzarella SaladDifficulty: Easy
- Total time 10 m
- Elaboration 10 m
We wash the lettuce leaves to remove any possible remains of earth. We drain and dry well. We remove the hard part of the leaf face, leaving only the green. We arrange on the basis of two plates and, on them, we place some arugula leaves (quantity to taste). We prepare a vinaigrette with the oil, vinegar, honey, salt and pepper and season the lettuces, reserving a couple of teaspoons for the end.
We wash the strawberries, remove the leaves and the peduncle and cut into quarters. We drain the mozzarella balls on absorbent paper and cut them in half. We toast the pine nuts in a pan, over medium heat, stirring from time to time and taking care that they do not burn.
Cut the avocado lengthwise, remove the bone and skin. We laminate each half and place them in the center of the plates, on the arugula. On both sides we place the strawberries, mozzarella and some blueberries, which provide a super sweet touch. Decorate with the toasted pine nuts and sesame seeds. We water with a teaspoon of vinaigrette and serve immediately.
