Avocado, Strawberry & Almond Salad

Posted on April 28, 2020 by

Not your typical fruit salad! Pairs great with anything off the grill – I served it with shrimp kabobs brushed with olive oil & red pepper flakes!

1 small avocado, sliced
5 or 6 strawberries, sliced
¼ cup slivered almonds, toasted
¼ tsp butter

1 tsp. honey
1 tsp. olive oil
1 tsp. lemon juice


  1. Toast almonds over medium heat in skillet with ¼ tsp. butter. Set aside to cool.
  2. Slice avocado & strawberries into small bowl.
  3. Mix together dressing ingredients and pour over fruit.
  4. Stir and top with almonds.

Fresh and delicious!


½ cup heavy cream

¼ cup bulk sugar substitute

½ tsp vanilla extract

4 oz. light cream cheese, softened

12 large strawberries



  1. Wash and dry strawberries.
  2. With a sharp knife, slice down through the point of each berry about ¾ way to the crown. Place each berry leafy top down on a plate.
  3. With an electric beater, whip cream until frothy.  Add sugar substitute and vanilla and whip on high until soft peaks form.
  4. Add softened cream cheese and whip for a few seconds.  Do not overbeat or cream will break down. Place the mixture into a pastry bag.
  5. Slightly spread the folds of the strawberry and insert the tip of the pastry bag to pipe a dollop of cream mixture into the center. Garnish with mint leaf or orange peel.


Variation: Instead of ¼ cup sugar substitute, use 1 Tablespoon sugar substitute and add a Tablespoon fresh chopped basil with a dash of freshly cracked pepper.
