  1. Hi kalpana , i was just looking for some Avocado Salads and all your three posts on Avocado Salads came in handy … Avocados and Bananas are the best source for Potassium and they are great nutrient in one’s diet to prevent Heart Attack and Stroke i recently discovered …ty so much

  2. Dear Kalpana
    As promised after reading the blog posting with the avocado and cherry tomato salad last week, I followed through and made it. The first time was on Sunday ( mother’s day) and I did it again today! It’s my favorite salad now for sure. I made a couple of very slight modifications. Added yellow cherry tomatoes​ and basil instead of cilantro. As you can see William can’t wait to tuck in:) Dinner alfresco tonight.

    See you guys tomorrow around 8pm.

    Much love

  3. Your Avocado Salad with Cherry Tomatoes simply looks stunning as well as delicious. I will definitely make it since I like them both. Thanks for the easy and lovely recipe.

      1. I almost did. I exchanged the red onions, that I didn’t have for garlic sprouts. The salad was delicious, and I’ve made it several times 🙂 Thank you! I am sure I will be making it a lot more in a few weeks, when my cherry tomatoes a ripe. How is your vegetables doing?

        1. Oh how cool! I’ll have to try this salad again with garlic sprouts – what are garlic sprouts?

          My veggie patch is finally putting on some growth. We have had mild temps – 60s and 70s, but the last week we got some 8os and I see the veggie seedlings right away got bigger and are setting flowers. Thanks for asking 😊

          1. I actually decided to make the salad again, after your comment the other day. When you plant garlic cloves in soil, it takes a long time to get a whole garlic, but meanwhile the green spouts (looks like grass,) that comes up within a few days is delicious. I cut it off and use it in salads, dressings, soups, and stews. It just keeps coming. I like that at least as much as I like the actual garlic. Try planting some garlic cloves in a container, and you can try it yourself within a week. They like to be in the sun.

            How exciting with your garden!! You’re going to have your own veggies very soon 🙂

            1. Thanks for the info on garlic sprouts. I will give growing garlic in a pot – I love growing plants in pots!! All my family and friends know I have a pot addiction (not canibas 😀 but plant pots).
