Three of my favourite salad veggies – avocado, onion & tomato! This is quickest and simplest salad to throw together and goes very well with all my rice dishes; crisp, cold and colourful. You can add red peppers, cucumber or celery to it of course but this version is simple and for me just right with one-pot rice dishes specially if you serve yogurt and cucumber (Mas-o-khiar in Persian or Tzatzki in Greek). We hardly ever eat rice without some yogurt, usually mixed with cucumber, spinach or grated beetroot – rounds up the rice dish beautifully
