For the salad

  • 1 Cos / romaine lettuce heart {approximately 150 grams}
  • 2 small cucumbers {approximately 300 grams}
  • 1 red bullhorn capsicum / pepper {approximately 150 grams}
  • 1 avocado {approximately 300 grams}
  • 3 tbsps lemon or lime juice {to squeeze on the avocado}

For the dressing*

  • 3-4 ripe passion fruit {to make up ¼ cup}
  • ¼ cup avocado oil
  • 3 tbsps lime juice
  • 2 Kaffir lime leaves {optional but adds so much flavour}


  • Wash, trim and peel all your veg and remove the seeds from your capsicum (pepper).
  • Shred your lettuce, slice the cucumbers and pepper into rounds and cut the avocado in chunks with a squeeze of lemon juice to prevent browning. Put everything in a mixing bowl.
  • Cut your lime leaves into chiffonade and add to a glass jar with the rest of your dressing ingredients, season and shake until emulsified.
  • Pour your dressing over the vegetables in your bowl, season with sea salt and cracked black pepper.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings according to your taste.
  • Arrange in a salad bowl and serve immediately.
