Lettuce and avocado walnut salad


1 tbsp clear honey

125g (4 oz walnut halves

1 medium lettuce, shredded

1 medium avocado, sliced

For the dressing

4 tbsp walnut oil

2 tbsp extra virgin, olive oil

1-2 tbsp Sherry vinegar

Salt and black pepper


Heat the honey in a small frying pan, add the walnuts and stir-fry over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes until the nuts are glazed. Tip on to a plate and leave to cool.

Meanwhile, prepare the lettuce in a bowl and the avocado separate in bowl.

Whisk, all dressing ingredients together in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper. Pour over the shredded lettuce and arranged the avocado, and scatter over the glazed walnuts and served immediately.

Not sure how it tastes since I’m allergic to nuts and had to take an antihistamine and wear a mask to prepare because I shouldn’t do it in the first place. I was told it was delicious after been told off for putting myself at risk.

I have develop a passion for natural and healthy life style, starting with a vegan life style including regular exercising each day. Which helped to feel inspired and happy within myself. my diet is very restricted due to severe allergies! When ever a food triggers a hostile response from the body's immune system the result is an allergy attack, which on occasion may be life-threatening although it's relatively simple to identifying problem foods, avoiding them completely is not always easy. My journey with allergies hasn't been easy "but" it has helped me to becomes a stronger person and would like to share and encourage others to never get discouraged, there's always light at the end of the tunnel if you keep persevering.
