Preparation

  1. Put the rice in a mixing bowl, let cool, and add the lobster.
  2. Peel the avocados and slice in half. Remove the pits. Cut the avocado into cubes and sprinkle with lemon juice to prevent discoloration. Add the cubes to the mixing bowl. Sprinkle with onion.
  3. Put the mustard and vinegar in a small mixing bowl and beat lightly with a wire whisk. Gradually add the oil, beating briskly with the whisk. Add the garlic, salt, pepper and parsley. Pour over the salad and toss. Serve at room temperature.
