bite this post 12 29 2010 Avocado Lime Dressing 01 Avocado Lime Dressing (Bite This)

A perfect way to use your very soft ripe avocados, not to mention a deliciously spicy way to eat them! Pour this raw dressing over just about anything you like really. You will be very happy you did… Perfect for salads, steamed vegetables, grains, seaweed, baked potatoes, beans…Mmmm Mmmm

Oh and if you happen to be one of those people who hate cilantro (I cry at even the thought of hating cilantro. I am a huge lover of the herb) use a combo of mostly parsley some basil, and a few leaves of mint.

I am a huge fan of making homemade dressings. They are extremely easy to make, cost effective and much more delicious, not to mention healthier than the bottled stuff. Think about it.

Now I am a true blood New Yorker at heart which means, I must hit the town and dine out a few times a week. This gives me plenty of tasting opportunities and when I run across a yummy dressing…I make sure to ask for the recipe. Most of the time, I get some vague answer, but that isn’t a problem, that is a challenge. With my new flavor discovery, I go into my kitchen, and like a mad scientist, I try my hand at re-creating it. This was one of those inspired moments….

Meyer lemons are one of my all time favorite lemons. They are sweeter, less acidic and juicer than your regular lemon. You will find them at the markets this time of year up until about April. They also have very soft skin that is tender enough and yummy to eat!

You can not, replace a Meyer lemon with a standard lemon in this recipe.

Our Monday Salad, A Green Bean, Rocket, Peach & Fig Salad With A Raspberry & Balsamic Vinegar Dressing Salad..

This is V here: It’s Monday and starting today and ending today we will post a new salad every Monday. And now on to Alice’s recipe:

Fast, super-easy, hearty and full of flavors, this is the perfect salad for the late-summer, early-fall season. Refreshing and satisfying, colorful and elegant, this fruit and vegetable salad works amazingly well as a light lunch but you can certainly serve it at a dinner party, just make sure you prepare it right before serving time as the vegetables -and fruits- can get too soggy. The main components of this dish are typical summer fruits -such as fresh white peaches, figs and raspberries- that are usually eaten on their own or in a fruit salad. Here, I combine them with green beans, rocket and fresh herbs -thyme and chives- and the result is a tasty, sweet and sour salad which is a great feast of tastes and textures, beautiful to look at but also good for your health.

Balsamic vinegar complements all the different fruity and herby flavors.

GreenChef Melissa Davison | Tropical Salad with a Raspberry Poppy Seed Dressing

“This was a beautiful and refreshingly sweet salad, perfect for a light lunch. The mixture of the fresh fruit and greens together with a sweet and tangy creamy dressing was a great combination. I don’t usually eat poppy seeds, but it worked rather well with this dish and added a nice crunch. It’s important to remember that poppy seeds contain opiates like morphine and codeine, although the cultivated western poppy seeds contain little opium if any. I’m sure they’re safe in small quantities as a garnish as they are usually used.” – Indulge
