RECIPE: avocado dill dressing

I LOVE finding exotic fruits and veggies and experimenting with them. This weekend I found these little guys in a basket with the label "Cameo Apples".
apple/pear/plum mystery fruit
I looked up "Cameo Apples" and they look nothing like this ... a mislabeled misfortune. These guys look pear-ish and apple-ish, so I took my knife to it like I would an apple. And WHOA, there was a pit in the middle!! So it must be an apple/pear/plum mystery fruit.

I decided to use them like I would an apple in a delicious farm salad with a delicious dressing I saw over at Kim Snyder's website.
Dreamy Creamy Avocado Dill Dressing
from Kimberly Snyder
1 avocado
1 clove of garlic
juice of one lemon
handful of fresh dill
1-2 dates, soaked (or 1-2 tablespoons of agave)
1/4 cup of water
1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Throw everything into a high speed blender and blend until creamy and beautiful. It will keep for a few days, if it goes uneaten that long.


In this salad I used spring mix, spinach, cucumber, apple-pear-plum mystery fruit, figs, baby tomatoes, and slices of avocado.

So simple and elegant and so YUM.
