You may be thinking, "A salad? Seriously? A salad. It's so simple even a Tar..."
Go ahead. Finish your thought. "Even a...Tart...can do it." Exactly. Even we can do it. The problem is, we don't do it enough. What we do DO enough is make too many sweets. So we need a wee bit of a salad cleanse. This is Danielle's salad with a little something spicy and a little something naturally sweet. And always, always, siempre...avocado. We love avocado. Danielle, perhaps a bit too much.
This Here Salad Thang
1 bunch fresh arugula
1 cup pear tomatoes, halved
1/2 Red Anjou pear, sliced
3 green onions, sliced
1 Anaheim chile pepper, sliced
3 oz good quality feta cheese, crumbled
1 avocado, sliced
Sea salt flakes, to taste
Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
Generally there's a little cilantro thrown on top, but not today. Feel free to sprinkle with any fresh herb...
We would tell you how to assemble, but we're pretty sure you'd be like, "Duh."
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
1 shallot, minced
1 tsp oregano
1/4 lemon, squeezed
A drop agave nectar, to taste
Salt/Pepper to taste
(This is really a half recipe as we always end up with too much, but feel free to double if making for a larger group. We also use extra shallot cuz we like our dressing shizallot-y.)
Whisk those babies together...
...and dream up the dessert you get to eat, because you were good and ate a salad...
...then drizzle on your ensalada and enjoy!
BTW - You may have noticed there's no avocado on the salad in the photo...
Where is that avocado?
Houston, we have a problem.
