Cuban Salad

A salad that is full of colour and looks good enough to eat!  Part of the fun is the assembling of the salad but you could change how I have it if you are feeling creative enough.    This Cuban salad  recipe is an easy salad to make and very refreshing.     The dressing is fresh and tasty too.   I had difficulty restraining myself from munching the whole plate in one sitting!

The salad is a melody of avocado, tomatoes, lettuce, onion and radishes.  So simple and with a tasty dressing is very uplifting.   It needs to be eaten pretty soon after making as the avocado may start to discolour.





1 head of lettuce (I used Romaine)

2 tomatoes, sliced

1 Avocado, sliced

1/2 red onion, peeled and finely sliced

6 radishes, sliced


1/4 cup lime juice

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

1/2 cup olive oil

3 cloves garlic, finely chopped






  • Mix the dressing ingredients.
  • Shred the lettuce and place on a serving dish or plate.
  • Arrange the avocado on the centre.
  • Place the onion around the avocado.
  • Place the radish slices over the onion.
  • Finish with the tomatoes around the outside edge of the plate.
  • Drizzle the dressing over the salad.
  • Eat and enjoy!

Serves 2 – 4
