Radicchio and Avocado Salad

I concocted a quick and nutritious recipe this evening for my supper. I Just thought I would start sharing the recipes I come up with. I try to use all organic vegetables but will substitute with non-organic when there is not other option.

No picture for this one–sorry! It was so delicious, by the time I decided to post the recipe I had finished the salad.

Radicchio and Avocado Salad

Combine the ingredients in the order listed:

~ 7-10 Radicchio leaves
~ 2-3 TSP balsamic vinegar
~ 1-2 TSP extra virgin olive oil
~ 1 clove finely chopped garlic
~ 1 full red/orange Sweet Peppers
~ half ripe avocado
~ 5-6 slices English cucumber
~ half serving of chopped almonds
~ sprinkle lightly with grated Parmesan cheese

511 calories*14g fiber, 14g protein.
