Nutritional values

In this salad mix, avocado and olive oil provide us with vital monounsaturated fatty acids; They 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.
