  • Mixed greens or any lettuce that is buttery and sweet of your choice.
  • 2 small crates or one large size container of sliced organic strawberries
  • 2 small avocados sliced

Dressing:

  • 2 Tablespoons of white sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons of olive oil
  • 4 teaspoons of honey
  • 1 Tablespoon of white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon of dry dill

Mix dressing contents above together in a blender and pour over salad mixture and you are finished.  Thanks to my friend Lisa who made this for me in LA.  I don’t think it is exactly the same but you inspired me 🙂
