Dukan Avocado Tartare (it's Paleo too!)

Avocado Tartare

We loved this recipe!  Well, I loved it and the male half thought it was tasty even though it has raw onions in it.

We used a recipe we found on Foodland's website and tweaked it a bit (and at home we refer to it as "Avocado Salsa".  We used less oil, less lime juice and left out the fresh oregano since we didn't have any.   Even with less lime juice, it was still very tart and tangy...we'll probably use even less next time.    We actually used way too much cilantro...we didn't want to waste it...the recipe below shows the correct amount you may want to use.

For Dukan Dieters, you may want to wait until Consolidation and Stabilization to consume this due to the fat content of the avocado and the amount of olive oil used.

Serves 4-6
Prep Time: approx 20 minutes

2 ripe, large avocados, pitted and diced (skin removed)
1 jalapeno or serrano chile (seeds removed), diced (we used a jalapeno)
1/3 c. fresh cilantro, chopped
1/3 c. red onion, chopped
1/8 c. fresh lime juice (approx 1 lime)
salt and pepper to taste
1 t. Tamari (wheat free, gluten free low sodium soy sauce)
1/2 - 1 T. olive oil

Mix all ingredients to together.  Add more salt and pepper if needed.  Chill for about an hour and serve.

This Avocado Tartare goes great with our Seared Ahi Tuna Recipe!  You can use it on tacos, quesadillas, served over a southwestern style steak, etc.

Enjoy...we sure did!
