Fresh Fruit Salad Recipe With Creamy Avocado Dressing

Fresh Fruit Salad Recipe With Creamy Avocado Dressing This fruit salad is a favorite of mine. The first time I made it I wasn't sure how the avocado dressing would taste but the combination of flavors are delicious. If you don't have buttermilk use plain yogurt. Even sour cream, thinned with water, will work in a pinch.

Serves 4

INGREDIENTS

Fruit Salad:
3 apples, diced
2 tablespoons lemon juice 30 ml
1 large orange, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup raisins 62 ml
1/2 cup unsalted cashews 125 ml
garnish: sliced strawberries or cherries (optional)

Avocado Dressing:
1 small ripe avocado, peeled, seeded and cut into pieces
1 cup buttermilk 250 ml
2 tablespoons lemon juice 30 ml
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest 2-3 ml
4 tablespoons honey 60ml

garnish: sliced strawberries or cherries (optional)

DIRECTIONS

1. Dice the apples. Toss them with lemon juice. Add orange slices, raisins and cashews and mix.

2. To make the dressing put the avocado, buttermilk, honey, lemon juice and lemon zest in a blender or food processor. Process until smooth and creamy. Adjust honey and lemon to taste.

3. Pour dressing on fruit and mix. Garnish with strawberries or cherries. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Bon appetit!
