Avocado Cashew Salad Recipe

This avocado cashew salad is one of the most delicious ways to ensure you’re getting healthy fats for the day!

This simple recipe came to me via Facebook from Lori B. I am ever so thankful to Lori for this recipe for all the “oohs and aahs” this recipe garnered at my Mother’s Day barbecue. Simply put, this was absolutely delicious.

A close up view of a white bowl filled with this Clean Eating Avocado Cashew Salad. You can see chunks of avocado and tomatoes over the top of the bowl.

Lori seemed to think that this might be an odd combination of ingredients. But the second I saw the recipe, I knew it would be fabulous. This salad is a fantastic way to get your healthy fats in for the day, and it’s packed with good-for-you nutrition.

It’s a great side dish for any meal, particularly at barbecues or other gatherings. It’s filling and oh, so good for you. I’m telling you, nobody could get enough of this stuff when I served it. Thanks, Lori! I will be making this again and again in the coming years!

Make sure your avocados are soft and ready to eat. Firm avocados won’t work well here. If you are worried about them being mushy and making a bad presentation, mix the salad very gently. There will still be some avocado residue that gets on the rest of the ingredients, but at the end of the day, it’s all just yummy, no matter how messy it is!

  11. This recipe sounds amazing, but I was wondering if you used roasted and salted cashews or raw cashews. Thank you for your wonderful recipes.

      Jill – Either way. I think mine were raw, but whatever tastes best to you will work.
