Directions

Put the spinach leaves and pumpkin seeds into a large salad bowl.

Halve the avocados and then remove the stones. Spoon out the flesh over the salad leaves and pumpkin seeds.

Mix the olive oil, lime juice and zest in a small bowl. Add the salt and whisk to emulsify.

Pour the dressing over the salad, and then gently toss everything together using your hands. Take care not to mush the avocado pieces.

    Thank you, Nigella, for coming up with a bold dish that uses raw spinach! All in our family love it- even my 3 y/o! The tangy zip of lime, the creaminess of avocado, and the crunch of the pepita. Best with smaller, more tender spinach leaves. A+ in my recipe book!
