Feeding the kids: Guacamole salad
In my ongoing quest to find tasty, kid-friendly food appropriate for the whole family, this week I chose a delicious end-of-the-summer fresh salad. I found the recipe in "KewlBites: 100 Nutritious, Delicious and Family-Friendly Dishes" by teen star Reed Alexander (Rodale Books; $21.99). Serve for lunch or in a bowl alongside chips for a snack or starter.
Kewl Chopped Guacamole Salad
(Makes 6 servings)
- 4 ripe Roma tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
- 1 large yellow tomato, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
- 4 ripe avocados, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
- 1 sweet white onion, cut into 1/4-inch chunks
- 1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped

1. In a large bowl, gently combine the red and yellow tomatoes, avocados, onion and cilantro. Add salt and pepper to taste.
2. Add the lemon juice and toss lightly to combine.
