Since people in Cuba don't usually have ready access to salad greens , Lourdes Castro says, many will start a meal with this simple avocado salad instead. Cubans tend to use Florida avocados, which are widely available in the Caribbean ; they're larger and smoother than Hass avocados, stay bright green when ripe and have a mild, slightly sweet flavor.


  • 1 Florida avocado or 3 Hass avocados, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 small red onion, very thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon(s) red wine vinegar
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper


  • 1. Arrange the avocado slices on a platter and top with the onion. Drizzle with the olive oil and vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Serve right away.
