Quinoa and avocado salad
Ok ok, so salads might not be the obvious choice for wintery food but hear us out on this one. The addition of quinoa and interesting greens and seeds make this hearty and filling and you could even serve this at room temperature, or warmed. Swap out the lettuce for spinach if you like, and serve alongside grilled chicken or fish to turn into a substantial meal.

Celebrate the 2021 avo season by adding an avo (or two) to your family’s best-loved dishes, for simple, quick and utterly delicious meals made with love.
The buttery, creamy green-skinned avo varieties Fuerte, Edranol, Ryan, Reed and Pinkerton are available from March until October, and the rich, nutty dark-skinned Hass, Maluma Hass and Lamb Hass from March until November.
While we love the fact that South African avos are available almost all year-round, we’re particularly happy they’re in plentiful supply in winter due to the immune support they may offer in the colder months.
