Avocado Salad with Raspberries

Ingredients

Dressing

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons raspberry vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon half-and-half cream
  • Finely grated zest of orange
  • 1 teaspoon orange juice
  • Pinch of sugar
  • Black pepper to taste

Salad

  • 2 avocados
  • 4 cups mixed greens
  • 1½ cups fresh raspberries
  • Sprigs of fresh mint

Directions

  1. Put all dressing ingredients in a large salad bowl; whisk together.
  2. Halve the avocados and remove the pit; peel and dice the flesh. Add immediately to the dressing, and stir to combine and coat. This will prevent the avocado pieces from turning brown.
  3. Add the salad leaves in the bow and toss gently with the avocado. Scatter the raspberries over the top. Makes 4 servings.
