Pomegranate and toasted pine nuts with avocado on a lettuce bed with lemon and lime dressing

Only a couple of ingredients but the combination works and when served with humous on a warm flatbread is yum.

Begin by toasting the pine nuts in a dry frying pan. Keep an eye on them and shake to turn and remove once the majority are lightly brown remove from the heat and allow to cool

Shred the lettuce and add to the salad bowl

Half, stone and skin the avocado. I use a sharp knife to half it and remove the stone then a desert spoon to scoop out the flesh whole. chop into chunks and add to the salad bowl.

Add the red pomegranate seeds (known as arils) to the salad bowl. If you have bought a complete pomegranate then deseed it and place the ruby jewels in the salad bowl.

Add the cooled pine nuts to the salad and mix.

drizzle over some extra virgin olive oil and the juice of half a lime and half a lemon and serve.

one option – serve the salad on a warm flatbread and humous
