Tropical Salad

Monday, March 22, 2010

I saw this recipe on Katy's Food for a Hungry Soul website a couple weeks back, it looked so good! I like kiwis, oranges, and well... I've been in love with avocados for quite some time. Justin and the boys didn't care for the salad but I thought it was a nice change, it would be a great salad to eat with my girlfriends on a hot summer day!

Abbott told us his first joke! Wanna hear it?!
......How do you make Lady GaGa mad? ......Poke her face!
Get it? Poker Face is the title of Lady GaGa's popular song! I'm sure he heard the joke from someone else, but this is the first joke he's ever told us. It's such a corny joke but we laughed so hard, he's such a funny guy! Did I mention he got eyeglasses last week? What a stud! Salad Ingredients
4 large oranges
4 kiwi
2 large avocados
Lettuce (I used Spinach leaves)
Dressing Ingredients
Lime juice **
Orange juice **
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 cup salad oil

Peel the oranges and separate into sections. Use a sharp knife to remove the membrane and the pith, capturing any juices in a bowl. **

Next, cut the avocado lengthwise around the pit. With your hands, twist the avocado halves in opposite directions to separate them. Tap the tip of the knife into the pit so that the knife tip catches the pit and carefully twist the knife to loosen and remove the pit. Peel and then slice the avocado halves.

Peel and slice the kiwi fruit.... word to the wise, use a spoon to remove the skin or you'll have kiwi splinters in your fingers for weeks! Arrange the fruits on a bed of lettuce on a salad plate.

For the dressing, measure the reserved orange juice and add enough lime juice to make 1/2 cup. Add the salt, honey and oil. Whisk thoroughly until well combined. Lightly cover the salad with the dressing, serving any remainder on the side.

I think a green salad is not a perfect salad without avocado, because it has a perfect flavor, actually I've heard it has excellent properties for our body and hair too.m10m
