Blue Cheese and Avocado Salad




 ............................................................................................................................................................

Well we have just got back from a few weeks away.....




I'll tell you more about that next week when I've waded through the 3 million photo's I took - I think I've got a disease - cameraitis or something!

Anyway a little hint ....can you guess where we went?



We had a fantastic time but ate rather a lot of cake! so we are now both on a little health kick to recover and therefore salads are featuring rather heavily in our diet.

............................................................................................................................................................

Last night I came up with this one it was really tasty so I thought I would share it with you.

As usual no really quantities just work on the theme and add as much or as little as you like.



First grab yourself a large serving plate or dish and arrange some salad leaf - I used a whole head of sweet gem lettuce - it added a good crunch to the salad.


Then scatter chopped avocado over - we used one whole avocado


Followed by a white peach - skin left on because I liked the colour


And then some cubes of blue cheese - we had Stilton in the fridge so that's what I used although any blue cheese would do!


I made up a simple dressing of the juice of one lime; 2 tablespoons of olive oil; a teaspoon of hot chilli sauce; salt & pepper


pour the dressing on and serve

We had ours with some pork chops - that were simply grilled with a little olive oil & seasoning.

Yummy........
