Japanese Style Avocado Salad

This Japanese style avocado salad is the simplest and most delicious way to eat an avocado.  It’s my mom’s recipe and one of my favorite at that!

If you’re pretty experienced with low-carb/keto eating, chances are that you memorized all the nutritional facts for avocados like your home address.  But for those that are new and just starting out, let us introduce you to the super fruit – avocado!

Japanese Style Avocado Salad

Avocados are bursting with omega 3 fats and packed with dietary fiber resulting in only 4 net carbs for the entire fruit!

They also come fully loaded with many of your daily essential vitamin & minerals, and on top of all that, they taste great as well!

So great that when we were dealing with financial hardship growing up, my mom used to dip avocados in Soy Sauce and say it was like eating sashimi!

And funny enough, that’s exactly how this recipe came about.  We used to eat a lot of avocados this way and each time, we added a new ingredient until our family settled on this version.

It’s super easy to make and delicious at the same time!

So next time you’re in need of an easy snack or looking for a quick side dish to accompany your meal, give this super easy dish a try!  You won’t regret it!

Interestingly enough, this dish kind does taste like sashimi as my parents used to claim.

The oils and texture found in the avocados mimic what you would find in a fatty fish like tuna, of course minus the tuna taste profile itself.

But comparing something that’s like 2.99 vs 59.99+ USD a pound, you’re going to have to level off your expectations!

Now, let’s get started!
