Avocado and cashew nuts salad

Do you love avocados? I do. I remember the first time I tried it, it was about 16 years ago, when I was a student at KIAD and was renting a room in a house where we had students from several countries. A friend of mine Cloe taught me how to make an avocado salad with cashew nuts and cheese.

It is a very easy and healthy salad. All you need is a good ripe avocado, iceberg lettuce, cashew nuts (unsalted), a hard cheese (like Leerdammer or Jarlsberg) and a dressing made of the olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
Just cube the cheese and avocado (half an avocado per person), add a sprinkling of cashew nuts, skatter these ingredients on top of the iceberg lettuce, drizzle with a mixture of olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and it is ready.
Brilliant for a quick lunch, when you don't want to be stuffed.
 I enjoy the combination and variety of tastes and textures of the smooth avocado, firm cheese, crispy lettuce and cruchy nuts in this salad.
