“I lost my tooth!”

I think I’ve spent the last 4 Queen’s Birthdays at home – studying.  So with all my exams behind me, I saw the light of day for first time this past Aussie public holiday :).  Our family friends invited us over for lunch so I opted to make a salad to go with the BBQ that was fired up :).

Avocado and apple salad

(variation of the one I found in Super Food Ideas Christmas Special edition- Dec ’09/Jan ’10 hehe)

Serves 4 – since there were a few other dishes, I didn’t increase the portions

  • 1 iceberg lettuce, leaves separated
  • 1 red oak lettuce, leaves separated
  • 2 small avocados, peeled, sliced
  • 1 large red delicious apple, cored, quartered, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
Dressing
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice  (kinda added heaps more later on)
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives
  • salt and pepper
1. Arrange lettuce on a platter. Top with avocado, apple, onion and pine nuts.
2. Make dressing – Whisk lemon juice, oil and chives together in a bowl.  Season with salt and pepper.  Drizzle dressing over salad.
3. Serve :).

Yep, I finally got into some proper Lightroom editing ;).

I love little kids.  At times I feel like I’ve had some of my own since I teach them on a regular basis and am surrounded by either my cousins’ babies or the ones at church.  One of the girls at the Queen’s Birthday Feast had a wobbly tooth and my dad did the honours, giving the last little wiggle to produce her toothless grin in the left hand corner of the photo below :).
