Recipe Directions

  • 1. Chop your carrots and tomato into small, bite-sized pieces. Place in a large bowl.
  • 2. Cut the avocado in half. Carefully remove avocado pit. Scoop avocado meat out with a spoon. Chop avocado meat into small chunks. Add avocado to bowl.
  • 3. Softly stir up all ingredients using a spoon. The avocado (and tomato seeds/juice) will coat everything and create their own dressing.
  • 4. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and eat immediately.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

This incredibly simple recipe is a perfect option for your on-the-go lifestyle.  With only 3 ingredients, the avocado acts as its own dressing and this can be whipped up in a flash, even at work! This recipe does not keep well, so it should be made a few minutes before eating.

If have have access to a lunchroom at work, simply bring these easy-to-pack ingredients with you, and make this recipe there. Just chop, stir and enjoy.  It’s so simple, and it will make you feel amazing.

Lunch Grocery List:
2 large carrots
1 medium tomato
1 avocado (nicely soft but not over-ripe)
...and 2 oranges for dessert!

Since I am renowned for my simple, satisfying recipes I feel negligent for not having shared this with you earlier. But better late than never, right? This is my go-to meal to take with me to work for lunch when I am in a rush. I know it sounds like it's very boring and not really a "recipe," but this meal is a big part of my life so I feel like it's my duty to share it with you!

Warning: Do not make this raw salad in advance! It'll get all smooshy and yucky if you do that. Instead, just grab a large carrot, a nice tomato and a fresh, perfectly ripe avocado and take them with you to work. Then, in your lunchroom or work kitchen just grab a knife and prepare while you're there. It's super fast to make and surprisingly tasty! Seriously.

Obviously, this is a perfectly fine meal to eat at home too, but I never really eat it at home because when I'm at home I'll make something a bit more exciting, like one of these recipes. :)

I know this sounds boring but trust me. It's a very nice flavor combo -- as long as your avocado is perfect and not overripe or under-ripe.

And there you have it, my secret raw lunch idea that I actually eat all the time, like, at least twice a week! (PS: I usually eat two oranges for dessert after lunch.)

This is really good! It's all ingredients I would eat as part of a sald (with lettuce), but never thought of just eating it on it's own. I've made this for myself twice in 3 days. It's simple and delicious. Quick easy light meal. I'm eating this now as I write! :^)

The avocado is integral, but perhaps you are unable to get in India. Is that so?

that's true.. it's not easily available in india (and if at all some places keep them, they are extremely costly).

Avocados are quite expensive here too - usually around $1.50 per avocado in Canadian dollars

I am glad that you liked it Shanay! It is very very easy, isn't it? I eat it twice a week when I have to go into the office to work. It's so quick to prepare in the mornings, I just grab the avo, tom and peel a carrot or two and I am ready to go! then I chop at work.

Love it! Avocados practically create their own dressing, don't they? I like to squeeze some fresh lime juice in there too and the result is amazing. The avocado, tomato juices, and lime juice, along with some Himalayan salt create the most amazing dressing that is delicious tossed with any other combination of vegetables and greens. Yum yum! I've been raw for over 2 years now and am still amazed by what you can create just by chopping or slicing a certain way or combining certain foods together before combining with other foods. Does that make any sense? LOL. Thanks for your fantastic blog, I'm definitely going to try some of your recipes. ♥

Hi Laura,

Yum, I like the addition of the squirt of lime. It reminds me of a Mexican fiesta, probably good with some fresh corn chopped in too, I am sure.

I tried this recipe and found it to be really tasty! I added some spicy peppers from the garden also. I may try cucumber or onions in place of the carrot for some reason I wasn't really feeling the carrots. This recipe is ingenious, normally with salads I use sea salt and lemon juice as my dressing, but the avocado and tomato dressing was just perfect!

I made this for lunch at work. I was amazed how delicious it was with so few ingredients. Thank you for the recipe. If you have any further suggestions for work lunches I would be grateful as I sometimes struggle with ideas in this area. Thanks again.
