Summer Salad Season!
Summer in Juneau means that there is decent produce and it's available most always. Simple pleasures.
I plan on taking full advantage of this phenomenon, starting with this avocado and grapefruit salad with a lemon-balsamic dressing. (PS- I'm keeping my eye out for that vegetable cart that was by Fred's last summer, has anyone heard if they are coming back?)
Spinach, sliced carrots, avocado, grapefruit chunks, cucumber and sliced almonds.
4 tbs Olive Oil
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper to taste.
I was listening to our local contemporary music station- KXLL.
I'm surprised I haven't given them a shout out before now, they're pretty excellent.
