I’m bringing this favorite back again, updated with a new photo and addition of red onion. Now that I’m no longer pregnant I can enjoy onions again so I’m sneaking them into everything! Thin slivers of crunchy raw onion make this salad even more enticing. With strawberries and avocado tossed in a tangy sweet vinaigrette- it’s the perfect start to your summer.
4/7/10: Since strawberry season will soon be upon us, I thought I’d bring back this recipe. Whenever I can get fresh strawberries, it finds our way on to our dinner menu. I’m thrilled that spring (yes it is still spring, even though at a predicted 94 F today in April, it feels much more like summer!) has decided to stay. That means we’re nearing the most wonderful time of the year- for fruit anyway! I’ve waited all winter long for fresh berries. Spring, I’m so glad you’re here!
Strawberry Avocado Salad
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp. honey
1 Tbsp. cider vinegar
1 tsp. lemon juice
dash of salt and freshly ground black pepper
avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced
pecans, toasted and chopped
red onion, thinly sliced (optional)
2. Toss the avocado in a little of the dressing to prevent browning. Place the salad greens in a bowl and top with sliced avocado and strawberries. Drizzle dressing over top, then sprinkle with pecans and serve.
