Gluten Free Chipotle Lime Avocado Salad
Skill Level: Easy
Time: 20 min
¼ cup each lime juice and maple syrup
½ tsp ground chipotle pepper
¼ tsp cayenne pepper, optional
2 medium ripe avocados, peeled and sliced
½ medium cucumber, peeled and chopped
1 T minced fresh chives
2 large tomatoes, cut into ½” slices
In a small bowl, whisk together lime juice, maple syrup, chipotle pepper and cayenne (if using). In another bowl, combine avocados, cucumber and chives. Drizzle with dressing; toss gently to coat. Divide over sliced tomatoes.
**Heat not your thing? Skip the chipotle and cayenne. The great thing about recipes is they give you a direction, but you should always substitute ingredients and spices for your taste.
