Elegant Dinner for Four – Now a Simple Salad


Many times salad is served as a separate course from the main meal.  It is certainly a matter personal preference, but we enjoy having the salad at the same time as the meal.  This enables the hostess to enjoy his/her meal without having to get up to clear the salad plates and then serve the entree.  Everyone enjoys the simple celebration together!

The following recipe serves four:

  • 10 oz. container of fresh spring greens
  • Avocado
  • 4 oz. fresh shaved parmesan (use a potato peeler to get a nice thin slice)
  • 1/4 c. good quality olive oil
  • 1 T. good quality balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and fresh ground pepper

Peel the avocado and cut into 4 equal pieces.  Leave one end of the avocado intact.  With a sharp knife cut two slits in the avocado lengthwise.  Place on plate and fan out.

Put lettuce in a large bowl and season with salt & pepper.  Whisk together the oil and vinegar, sprinkle over lettuce and toss.  Fill each plate with lettuce and add shaved parmesan to each serving.
