Liv Gets Crafty: Walnut and Avocado salad

I posted a picture on social media yesterday of a salad I made for a BBQ we attended. It's one of my Mum's salads she whips up for the family all the time and since I had quite a few people ask, here is the recipe complete with homemade dressing!



½ cup walnuts
100g baby rocket leaves
½ red onion finely sliced
2 avocados sliced


3 tabelspoons of olive oil
2 tabelspoons of lemon juice (I find I can normally squeeze this from one lemon, but I buy two just to be sure)
2 teaspoon wholegrain mustard


- At 170 degrees, oven cook the walnuts for 5 minutes and then roughly chop

- Combine oil, mustard and lemon juice in a jar and shake well

- Arrange rocket and onion on a plate 

- Drizzle with half of the dressing mix 

- Top with avocado 

- Add the rest of the dressing and then top with walnuts (best served when the walnuts are still warm). 


  1. This looks so good! Definitely gonna try and give it a go this week! I only have half the ingrediants or I'd make it today :-)

    I would say Happy Summer but I know it's Winter is Australia atm!


    Hailes Hearts Fashion.

  2. Yum, I think I'm gonna have to try this but sub olives for onion and pistachio for walnuts. Sounds delish though.
