Happy Heart Salads

You can keep your flourless chocolate cakes, your tired box of mass-produced chocolate, your supermarket roses and your chalky, too-sweet love-phrase candies. They do nothing for me.

But make me a smiling vegetable heart this Valentines Day, drizzled with just a touch of fruity, heart-healthy extra virgin olive oil, and I will be yours forever.

Ingredients

  • 1 large avocado, sliced $1.50
  • 2 carrots, shredded $0.50
  • 4 round slices of cucumber $1 for a whole cucumber
  • 4 small broccoli florets $1 for a bunch of broccoli
  • a few slices of red onion $0.50 for a whole onion
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil Pantry
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry

Recipe Serves 2

Directions

  1. Arrange half of the avocado slices on a salad plate in a heart (hint: put the rounder pieces in the "valley" of the heart). 
  2. Use a damp paper towel to wipe away any excess. 
  3. Repeat with the remaining avocado on a second salad plate.
  4. Divide the carrot between the two avocado hearts to fill in the centers. 
  5. Make the cucumber/broccoli eyes and red onion smile as pictured.
  6. Drizzle the hearts with 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil each, and top with a light sprinkle of salt and pepper.
  7. Serve immediately.
