Strawberry and Avocado Salad with Chile-Lime Dressing

Here's a simple one -- a springy side dish with bright colors, contrasting textures, and interesting flavors. Drizzle the extra dressing over an accompanying piece of grilled chicken.


Strawberry and Avocado Salad with Chile-Lime Dressing

Salad
4 cups fresh baby spinach
8 fresh strawberries, quartered
1 avocado, sliced into eighths

Dressing
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lime juice
1 tsp honey
1/4 tsp cayenne powder
1/8 tsp salt

Combine dressing ingredients in blender and emulsify. Chill dressing. Arrange 2 strawberries and 2 slices avocado atop 1 cup of spinach on each of four plates. Dress salad immediately before serving. Serves 4.
