Having made a goat‘s salad previously, I decided to adapt the salad further by adding my favourite fruit (it technically is because it has a seed). Yes added the smooth avocado. Adding this particular fruit just lifts the colour in appearance and gives the salad a softer texture.
It is a complete contrast to the crunchiness of the sweetcorn and lettuce leaves as well as the hard bite of the cheese. Finally, you have the sweetness of the cherry tomatoes. All in all a great salad.
