I am a big fan of anything avocado. That being said, I can’t bring myself to just eat them plain all the time, you need to spice things up sometimes. So, I decided to share one of my favourite warm salads with you all. It is vegan, gluten free and packed with healthy fats (something that a LOT of people are missing from their diets). I decided to write up a separate blog for the Hemp & Garlic Avocado Dressing as it can be used for more than just this salad. You can find the recipe for the dressing HERE.

This is a staple lunch during the week to get a high amount of healthy fats into my diet.
