Updated: Sep 16, 2020

Though simple, this recipe incorporates a variety of fruits and vegetables to help fuel our brains.


Avocados are high in monounsaturated fat, a healthy type of fat that actually helps decrease LDL “bad” cholesterol and increase HDL “good” cholesterol, which can help reduce your risk for a possible stroke.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries, divided

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

1 small clove garlic, finely chopped

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Pinch of freshly ground pepper

8 cups mixed salad greens

1 ripe mango, diced

1 small ripe avocado, diced

1/2 cup red onion, thinly sliced

1/4 cup toasted chopped hazelnuts or sliced almonds (optional)



Method

1. Puree 1/2 cup raspberries, oil, vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper in a blender until combined.

2. Combine greens, mango, avocado and onion in a large bowl. Pour the dressing on top and gently toss to coat.

3. Divide among five salad plates. Top with the remaining raspberries and sprinkle with nuts, if using.
