I’ve been on a “salads for lunch” kick lately. Today, I had 3 avocados getting perfectly ripe all at the same time! So I came up with this simple dish tat was super tasty. Guacamole salad with beef added! We didn’t have breakfast today (quite unusual for us, actually), so by 11am, we were both ravenous. This recipe definitely makes 3 servings, but the two of us finished off all 3 servings! We were just famished by the time I made it! This was not intended to be a taco salad, so we didn’t add cheese or tomato. You could though, if you like. It’s fun to be bad every once in awhile. 🙂 As the name implies, Holy-Moly was this salad ever good!!……..and extremely filling! Avocados are so good for you, with all their minerals and nutrients, so we try to eat them twice a week. The fiber offsets their carbs nicely. 🙂
This recipe is suitable for all phases of Atkins, but if still on Induction, you should reduce the guacamole “dressing” on your plate, as only half an avocado is allowed during Induction.

6 cups mixed salad greens (I used Romaine and Iceberg lettuce)
3 avocados, skinned, seeds discarded
1/4 tsp. total garlic powder
1/8 tsp. sea salt
11 oz. 90% lean ground beef
1/2 tsp. chili powder blend
DIRECTIONS: In a medium skillet over high heat brown the ground beef with 1/8 tsp. of the garlic powder and the chili powder. Reduce to lowest heat setting to keep it warm. Remove skin and seeds from 3 avocados. Scoop the pulp out with a spoon and mash with a fork on a paper plate. Add the remaining 1/8 tsp. garlic powder and sea salt to the mashed avocado and stir well. Set aside.
Chop the lettuce(s) you have chosen to use. Place the lettuce equally onto 3 serving plates. Top each portion with about 1/3 of the meat mixture (reserve 3 T.). Then spoon 1/3 of the guacamole mixture in the center of each plate. Top each with 1 T. of the reserved meat mixture. Serve at once lest the guacamole turn dark on you. Holy Moly is this ever good!
