Walnut, Avocado and Pear Salad


When I was in high school my German language teacher had a moto, KISS-Keep it Simple Stupid. Now looking back I do have to wonder, was this her subtle way of telling us really what she thinks of us or was she actually trying to teach us a valuable life lesson? I will just leave it at the life lesson.

Simplicity does not have to mean lack of flavour or substance. In this case simplicity is about getting the best flavour in almost the least amount of time that one could get to prepare this delicious salad. Other than a little grilling and chopping the majority of time is spent assembling and eating.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
