  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 0 1/3 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 6 cup, shredded or chopped Mixed Salad Greens

  • 1 large whole (3" dia) Red Tomatoes
  • 1 cucumber (8-1/4") Cucumber (with Peel)

  1. In small dry skillet over low heat, toast cumin 2 minutes or until fragrant, stirring frequently.
  2. In small bowl, whisk cumin and lemon juice together. Add oil in a thin, steady stream, whisking until blended. Add salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
  3. In large salad bowl, combine greens with 1/4 cup dressing; toss to coat. Place on 4 serving plates.
  4. Dice the avocado, tomato, cucumber and onion and place in a bowl with the  remaining dressing; toss to coat. Top each portion of greens with avocado mixture. Adjust seasonings.
  5. Serve immediately.
