1. To make the dressing. Place the avocado, garlic, yoghurt, oil, lime juice, water, pepper, salt and chilli flakes in to a food processor or blender.

2. Whizz up until silky smooth. If the dressing is too thick, add in more water until desired consistency.

3. To make the salad. Place all of the salad ingredients into a large mixing bowl and toss until fully combined.

4. Serve with a drizzle of the delicious avocado dressing, sprinkling of sesame seeds and a slice of lime for a zesty kick!!! You can also add a extra layer of flavour with mango chutney!
