Simple Summer Salad

IMG_2057Hi there– Last night Jenon came for dinner.  We sat out in the yard eating and talking until the sun went down and we just had the lantern light to brighten the table.  It was all old favorites for dinner– chipotle chicken, lime cilantro rice and this salad. I’ve been making if for years because it’s so fast and simple and goes with just about any summer meal.  It’s fresh, crisp and avocado creamy.

1/2 head red leaf lettuce (or your favorite greens)
1 can yellow corn
1 avocado, cut in cute chunks
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in thirds
1/3 cup olive oil
3 tab. tarragon vinegar
1 tsp. sugar
salt & fresh pepper to taste

So just layer the torn lettuce leaves, corn, avocado and cherry tomato on a platter.  In a container with a lid shake together the oil, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper until it’s emulsified.  Dress the salad just before you put it on the table.  So easy.  Enjoy!
