Whipped Avocado Salad

I dreamt up this bright Whipped Avocado Salad on our flight home from Paris. It’s filling enough to serve as a weeknight family dinner – you can add grilled chicken breast or a warm soft-boiled egg if you’re looking for something a little heartier, but it’s not necessary.

Whipped Avocado Salad

This salad is super-easy to prepare. It's a beautiful rainbow of colors and flavors. Swap in your favorite citrus or whatever's on sale or in season. Enjoy!

  • 2 avocados ripe
  • 1 head lettuce romaine or butter
  • 1 pomegranate
  • 1 orange
  • 1 red grapefruit
  • 2 tbsp chives chopped fine
  • 4 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • Blend the ripe avocado in your blender until smooth and creamy.
  • Prepare the dressing: whisk the oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper together until emulsified. Toss the lettuce with the dressing.
  • Slice the citrus and peel the pomegranate. Assemble the salad in a large bowl, lettuce first, then chives, fruit, seeds, and finally, the whipped avocado. Serve and enjoy!


You can use unsalted sunflower seeds, pumpkin (pepitas) seeds, or even sliced almonds as the crunchy topper to your salad.
