Spring Salad: Lettuce and Cantaloupe with Avocado Cilantro Lime Dressing

Largely self-explanatory, I think, but the combination of fresh, crisp green lettuce, sweet cantaloupe, and tangy, creamy dressing is a winner.

For the salad: 

  • One large head of green leaf lettuce, rinsed and torn into bite-size pieces
  • Half a large cantaloupe, divided into wedges and sliced in 1/4-inch pieces

For the dressing, whir up in a blender:

  • One ripe avocado
  • Juice of two limes
  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • salt
  • splash of olive oil
  • water for thinning, as needed. 

Toss with salad just before serving. Excellent as an accompaniment to spicy rice and beans.
