Avocado and Fruit Salad with Homemade Basil Vinaigrette

Avocado and Fruit Salad with Homemade Basil Vinaigrette

This is my standard summer salad. I love how the colors compliment each other and I know for me the prettier it is, the tastier it seems! During the months of June, my cup over-floweth with strawberries and it’s easier to snag a bushel (and a peck) from our local Farmer’s Market.

The basil vinaigrette is my own invention though I’m sure that many households enjoy a similar dressing. I combine 2/3 cup olive oil with 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar with 1 TBS honey and 1 TBS fresh basil, torn into little pieces. I add salt and pepper to taste and voila! A perfect and easy summer meal.
