Recipe Rescue: Guest Recipe, Mexican Salad!

The greatest thing about cooking with passion and creating fun recipes is the friendships that bloom because of it. I have never had so many conversations about food and cooking as I have in the past year. I am loving the new freedom of conversation. In my many talks with my friend Lindsey O’brien of the Lindsey O’brien band we have dished about healthy, low-carb, extra fattening and vegetarian recipes. Today, she throws my way a vegetarian Mexican salad that is so satisfying you won’t bother saying, “Where’s the meat”? Thank you Lindsey, let’s get cooking!

smear the mixture to a coarse past. whisk
the garlic paste, lime juice, rest of the salt

evenly. remove from the heat and gently fold in the
tomatoes, avocado and cilantro.
