Why I Love This Recipe

As a fan of Japanese-inspired dishes, I’m particularly drawn to my Japanese Style Avocado Salad recipe! It takes the creamy richness of ripe avocados and enhances it with the savory fusion of soy sauce and European olive oil, inspired by combing my Wasabi Avocado Salad together with the flavors found in my Tomato Basil Mozzarella Bites and Marinated Mozzarella Balls recipes!

Inspired by my mother’s cooking creativity, this salad offers a delightful alternative to traditional salads, with a texture reminiscent of a poor man’s Can Tuna Sushi as she would describe it! With minimal prep and maximum flavor, it’s perfect for anyone seeking a quick and healthy side dish that complements Japanese cuisine. Don’t wait to try it – dive into this delicious fusion dish today and elevate your avocado experience!



  • Avocado – fresh de-pitted and de-skinned sliced avocados.
  • Soy Sauce – low-sodium Soy Sauce preferred. Can also use tamari for gluten-free.
  • Olive Oil – extra virgin olive oil or olive oil of choice.
  • Salt – sea salt preferred.

🥑 Avocado Ripening Pro Tip

For a quick ripening of your avocado, pop it in a Paper Bag alongside a Banana or Apple. These fruits release ethylene gas, expediting the ripening process.

Can I prepare the dressing ahead of time?

How can I prevent the avocado from browning after slicing?

While it's challenging to completely prevent avocado from browning after slicing, you can slow down the process by minimizing its exposure to air. To do this, cover the exposed avocado tightly with plastic wrap or place it in an airtight container. Additionally, adding a squeeze of lemon or lime juice over the sliced avocado can help delay browning due to the citric acid acting as an antioxidant.
