Wasabi Avocado Salad


We’re lucky enough to have been invited by our in-laws for an impromptu trip to one of the local casinos we have out here.  We gambled a little, but mostly spent the time swimming with our kids and enjoying the summertime, which was a nice change of pace from always working on LCA!

But you know, LCA is never that far off our minds and as we were making our exit from the hotel, a menu from one of the restaurants caught my eye.  So I walked up for a closer look and there it read “Avocado Salad with Bonito Flakes”.

Now, that’s a pairing I never thought of before and was super interested in how it’d taste.  Unfortunately though, the restaurant was closed so there was no way I could try it out.  So instead, l glanced at the description and got a general idea of what I thought it’d taste like.

So a couple of days later, armed with inspiration from the menu displayed at the hotel lobby, I hit the test kitchen to come up this Wasabi Avocado Salad and it came out great!  I have no idea what the restaurant version tastes like, but this one is full of avocado and umami, and those are 2 things you can’t go wrong with!

With a dash of bonito flakes and a touch of heat from the wasabi, this dish really takes avocados to the next level!  It’s full of flavors yet all balanced together with a delicate sweet soy dressing all while being low-carb/keto friendly!

The avocados provide plenty of sought-after omega-3s all while being pack with potassium and essentials vitamins!  Not to forget, they are very low-carb/keto friendly and helps this dish come out to ~5 carbs for the entire serving!
