Cilantro, Avocado And Tomato Salad

by Daniel Valko

       Every New Year there's always talk about New Year’s resolutions. And this year mine was to be more creative with my photos and recipes on the blog and on Instagram. I hope I'll be posting more recipes this year with creative photos that will inspire, every one of you to bake and cook more often. And as always I hope you take a little time for yourself and relax in this New Year. Sometimes all you need in life is to simplify everything. Because everyday life, can get to complicated and stress you out.
      I've been wanting to share this salad recipe on the blog for a long time, but have never gone around to taking the photos. This is truly my favorite salad, which I eat several times a week and never get tired of. It goes best with steak and a side of potatoes or rice. And sometimes I add new ingredients to it, to change up the flavor. Like adding arugula or a spicy jalapeño sauce, which goes well with the cilantro. Any way you make it, the cilantro will always be the star of the salad...and that's how I love my cilantro. 

Enjoy this recipe and happy 2015
