Pinch of Yum inspired Avocado Salad with Wasabi Dressing

As many other food-bloggers too we are inspired by Lindsay´s famous `pinch of yum´. And first of all: It is a great blog and we learned a lot about food-blogging and photography. But shame on us we never tried one of her recipes till now. So lets see what makes this salad so great?
It is a delicious combination of interesting ingredients that everybody loves. It is a little bit extra on the one hand but also pretty easy to cook. So this is a good starting position for a successful food-blogger´s recipe. We made a few changes to the recipe that makes it even more easy. Instead of Miso we used Wasabi and honey instead of agave nectar. In place of normal peanuts we use roasted peanuts flavored with chili.
