Hello good fats with this fabulous salad! Yes it is pretty high in fat, but it's all the good stuff and low in saturated fat, making it super heart and brain healthy. The walnuts deliver plant omega-3s and most of the overall fat comes from the monounsaturated fat present in the avocado and the extra virgin olive oil. 

These fats deliver fat soluble vitamins and antioxidants. In fact, even those present in the rocket are better absorbed by eating alongside these good fats. 

Serve this salad with grilled meat or fish, or for a vegetarian meal a bean-based burger or marinated tofu skewers.
