Dreaming of warmer weather, I am regularly throwing together salads etc that seem more like summer and less like 28 degrees and 6-9″ of snow (forecast for tomorrow). We’re so close to the end of winter I can taste it! Just 2 more weeks until Mexico and when we get back it should be “downhill.”
HS hockey and swimming are now done, both boys finished the season strong. Alec has made his college choice (Lake Forest College), and I have purchased a ridiculous amount of Foresters gear! He will continue swimming, but mostly we are glad for the balanced and practical experience he has chosen for his undergrad experience. Plus Chicago is close but not too close 😉
We’re very proud and excited for this new chapter in his life. Avery has design plans for his “new” car and life as an only child. Oh boy.
Oh, and after all the bragging, here’s the recipe:
Avocado citrus salad
- Avocado, diced
- 1 cup citrus segments (grapefruit, oranges)
- 1 cup hearts of palm segments
- 1 cup diced cherry/grape tomatoes
- 16 oz mixed greens
- 2 stalks celery, sliced, including leaves
- 1/2 white onion, sliced
- Citrus dressing (2:1 ratio of olive oil to lemon juice, 1 clove garlic chopped)
- Salt and pepper
Toss together and pretend to be somewhere warm!
