As summer is coming to an end, well at least in the Northern Hemisphere that is, I could not help myself but to prepare one more summer salad.
My Family is a bit tired of my usual vinaigrette. And seeing that I love vinegar, you can only imagine their faces when they bite into the crisp green lettuce….
The search for something new and exciting brought me to run across so many wonderful recipes where plain Greek Yogurt was used. An array of recipes floated upon my desk, and, of course, I got side tracked… The recipe I am sharing tonight, Mixed Green Salad with Avocado Dressing is a combination of two of our favorite ingredients: Avocado and Greek Yogurt. We could not get enough of it. Fresh, light and delicious.
The recipe yields close to 2 cups and it stores well in the refrigerator. Perfect with plain green salad alongside roasted chicken.
I do hope you will enjoy it as much as we did.
