Leave a comment

organic strawberry avacado saladI have celiac and am allergic to dairy so I have to read everything before I eat it.  This is so yummy and perfect for fall when you are still getting those really ripe strawberries and avocados at a good price 🙂

  • 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 🙂

PS-this recipe is gluten and dairy free.

Easy 2 ingredient Chocolate Strawberries

1 Comment

easy chocolate strawberries Ah school has started but I don’t teach until Monday.  Cannot wait to meet all those new kindergarteners 🙂  This is another summer favorite.  Always yummy and easy for a quick dessert to take to friends houses etc.  Below are the directions.

 

Ingredients:

  • Fresh organic strawberries washed and patted dry so the chocolate will stick.
  • Guittard Extra Dark Chocolate Chips-these are the best 🙂

 

In a pyrex measuring cup fill with chocolate chips.  Then microwave for a minute stir to make sure all chips melted.  If not you can put in for another 20 seconds or so but one minute on high should do the trick.  Hold strawberry at top by greens and dip into cup.  Place on parchment paper and tray.  Put in fridge for a half hour or so to set and they are done.  Enjoy!
