Avocado Salad

Amanda was here for an overnight on Wednesday and like the foolish doting Nana that I am I let her sleep with me – NEVER AGAIN! If I got 2 hours of sleep all added up I’d be surprised. By the time I got home from driving round trip to Ojai to take her home yesterday I was wiped and couldn’t even think about food. Since it was pretty warm here I went for yet another try at duplicating Wendy’s avocado salad.  When Wendy and Michael lived here this was truly one of the high points of Bowen Court potlucks BBQs for me.  Simple, utterly yummy and yet I can’t quite get it right.  What I make is pretty good though – good lettuce (butter or other soft variety) and way more thinly sliced avocado than you would think. Salt, freshly ground black pepper, good olive oil and a squeeze of lemon. This and a glass of wine was all I needed last night. But I still miss Wendy (and Michael too)

    belgian endive and avocado is another marriage made in heaven (simplest vinaigrette)

    Philip – Have you tried grilling endive (or Romaine hearts)? Split down the middle, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Place cut side down on a hot grill just until slightly charred. Squeeze on a bit of lemon and fresh ground black pepper.

What do you think?
