I don’t love salad, but I have found that adding some fresh herbs and avocado can make it really delicious and filling.  I’ve been avocado obsessed lately and I’m convinced they can make almost anything better.   

I also really like to make my own dressing.  It’s easy, fine, not as easy as taking the lid off of a bottle, but still really easy and fresh. 

I keep getting distracted by Dancing with the Stars so here’s the components for a yummy salad, use them  in whatever amounts you like.

  • Mixed Spring Greens
  • Roma Tomato, chopped
  • Cucumber, chopped
  • Chickpeas
  • Fresh Dill
  • Avocado, diced

This is the dressing I had with this salad.  Just whisk it all together.

Honey Dijon Balsamic Vinaigrette

  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • A variation to the salad is replace the dill with fresh cilantro and the chickpeas with black beans.

    Coming up later this week:

    • Sautéed spinach with leeks and mushrooms
    • Carrot salad with ginger and cilantro
