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
- splash of olive oil
- water for thinning, as needed.
Toss with salad just before serving. Excellent as an accompaniment to spicy rice and beans.
