Fresh From the Garden

Mister gardener complied when I asked him for the recipe for a especially delicious salad he prepared recently. Since his lettuces are so wonderful right now, we are enjoying a variety of salads.  And, of course, my sweet tooth was satisfied when I tasted this one:

Romaine with Oranges and Avocados

1 tbsp white wine vinegar

1 tbsp juice of an orange

3 tsp honey

1/2  tsp Dijon Mustard

3  tsp chopped chives

1 tsp orange zest

salt/pepper to taste

3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 bunch  romaine lettuce

1 avocado, sliced

1 small red onion, sliced

1 navel orange, sectioned

1/4  cup pecan pieces, toasted

Add first 8 ingredients to a jar and shake well.  Arrange the rest of the salad ingredients on a salad plate.  Shake dressing again and drizzle over the salad and serve.  This recipe can serve 4 but we (or I) had no trouble finishing it off at one sitting.  Enjoy.
