In the kitchen

{Spring mix avocado, gorgonzola and fig salad}

These figs are sprouting everywhere on our street. I just noticed it the other day. Then I read somewhere that these particular trees are common in urban DC. So it gave an idea! A delicious dish, refreshing, and light that I can prepare using figs. It's so simple. NO measurements required.


one bag of Spring mix greens
one avocado
a few bits of diced onion
a handful of crumbled gorgonzola
a few bits of pine nuts
a few bits of cilantro leaves, chopped
a handful of dried figs, sliced

For dressing:  Whisk together olive oil and balsamic vinegar at a ratio of 2:1.  Add a teaspoon of Dijon mustard, salt and pepper.  If you wish, a squirt of lemon juice gives is a kick. 

Buen provecho!
