Salad Cake

Ingredients 

  • 1 avocado 
  • 1/2 cucumber, sliced 
  • Cherry tomatoes, sliced 
  • Cilantro 
  • Thyme 
  • Basil 
  • 1 small red onion, sliced 
  • Lemon juice 
  • Corn 
  • Sliced green onion 
  • Carrot curls 
  • Red pepper chopped 
  • Lettuce 

Directions 

1. Cut one half into small cubes and mash the other half in a bowl or a blender with a drizzle of lemon juice. 

2. Line the bottom of a ring mold with one layer of cucumber slices then add a layer of red onion, a layer of sliced tomatoes and a layer of diced avocado. Press on each layer, until you get to the rim of the ring mold. 

3. Gently remove the ring mold. Using a spatula, spread the mashed avocado on the top and sides of the salad cake, just like you would do for icing a cake. The cake should be entirely covered with a layer of avocado. 

4. Cut each cucumber slice in half, then stick them on the avocado “frosting” slightly overlapping like fish scales, making vertical rows. Proceed to cover the sides of the cake leaving the top. 

5. Garnish the top with vegetables and herbs of your choice. 

6. Place on plate with shredded lettuce 

7. Top with lime oil “caviar” if desired 

 

Alternate “Icing” 

  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt 
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice 
  • 1 teaspoon honey 
  • Roasted Beets 
  • 2 tsp. Italian Seasoning
