Friends and food. I love those occasions when old friends can fix their schedules so we can all get together for a meal. When I say friends, I mean friends who have know each other for years and can pick up right where we left off when we see each other again. My friend Ashely gathered all of us together... some are friends, some are fleshly family and others are family now through marriage. I love it! We all contributed a dish and the above is mine.
This chopped salad is so tasty, it was really a crowd pleaser. I will definitely make this again and again. Super simple and savory.
RAW CHOPPED SALAD WITH AVOCADO AND SUN DRIED TOMATOES
1 cup chopped cucumber
1 cup chopped heirloom tomatoes, I like to use different colored tomatoes to bring out color
1 cup chopped sun dried tomatoes
1 cup chopped avocado
1 cup chopped mushroom
3/4 cup chopped red onion
2 cloves minced fresh garlic
1/2 cup to 1 cup chopped cilantro (use as much as like to taste)
1/2 cup pine nuts1-2 lemons, juice of
1-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Combine all the chopped ingredients and nuts into a large bowl. Squeeze int the lemon juice to taste. I love the zestiness of the lemon, so I used to personally. Toss the salad and drizzle in the olive oil and add salt and pepper to taste. Toss again and taste.
I am definitely making this for my family. I love it.
