Nutritional values

Avocado and olive oil pack this salad with vital monounsaturated fatty acids, which increase the "good" HDL cholesterol in the blood, which promotes the removal of harmful cholesterol components. Both foods also contain a healthy portion of vitamin E which serves as a natural blood thinner.

If you want to save a few fat calories, replace half of the olive oil (3 tablespoons) with vegetable broth.
