Caprese “Pasta” Salad with an Avocado Twist
Check out this vegan meal! There's a bit of avocado to give it healthy fats while keeping things low-carb with our plant-based pasta. Thanks to Jenn for the meal!
"Celebrating Meatless Monday (for dinner, which still counts) with a twist on the classic Caprese Salad. This recipe is even Vegan-friendly, substituting avocado in place of mozzarella cheese.
While cheese is a great source of calcium, avocados are an optimal source of fat. I certainly can’t forget to mention this dish is significantly healthier than traditional pasta salad, thanks to Miracle Noodle! The “pasta” is made from the konjac plant, providing little to no carbs, and makes for a perfect replacement."
