If you saw that luscious head of lettuce in my last post from my first delivery of organic produce from Abundant Harvest Organics you will now see how I decided to utilize it below. I had an avocado on hand so I decided to make a Creamy Avocado Herb Dressing for the salad. Since I always have a large pot of mint in the garden and my basil hedge is in its full glory right now I thought this would make a great combination. I took out some garlic from the pantry and found a lone lemon in the fridge. Since there were jalapeno peppers in my delivery I thought that would make a great added kick to the dressing.
I prepped the lettuce, mixed in some organic baby lettuces, then added heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, and some shredded carrots to the salad. Doesn’t it look divine! All it needs is a scrumptious dressing.
In short order the dressing was complete. Below you can see how beautiful the salad is and how creamy the dressing is after mixing it in the blender. I had to display it in my green depression glass dish even though the colors clash a bit.
