Grandma's Strawberry Avocado Salad Recipe

Hello here is a fun but non Crochet post. Today my grandma threw a Garden themed lunch for her scrapbooking friends and I just have to share a few of the details with you!

We used potted fresh herbs down the center of the table and she had many little garden accents! For lunch she served quiche ( she is not parting with the recipe to that one) and a mouth watering Starwberry Avocado Salad.

To Make the Dressing:
2 TBSP White Sugar
2 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4 TSP Honey
1 TBSP Cider Vinegar
1 TSP Lemon Juice
Whisk together  and set aside.

To make the salad

2 cups torn salad greens
1 Avocada peeled and pitted
10 Strawberries sliced
1/2 cup chopped Pecans
Place salad greens in bowl and toss with dressing. Then top with sliced avocado, strawberries and pecans

That is my lovely Grandma in the blue and one of her friends :)

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we have!!!!
