Why I Am Posting These Recipes

I believe that it is healthier for an individual and for the planet to reduce the consumption of animal products in the human diet. However, I love to eat all kinds of delicious food, and find it really, really difficult to go totally vegetarian. Also, my family protests if I serve too many vegetarian meals in a row. So I am committed to making an effort to move towards a vegetarian diet without wholly doing so. I will post recipes several times a week that represent my philosophy of eating well, eating healthy, eating local. Most recipes will be easy to prepare, as I have a busy life. So I expect my followers to be people who love to cook and eat well, want to try to help the planet through their eating (by eating local foods and trying to reduce the use of meat in our diets), and have many other things to do each day besides cook.

Mango, Avocado and Watercress Salad


My husband's Aunt Iliana gave me the idea for this AMAZING salad.  Full confession:  she told me every single ingredient!  I came up with the proportions, which is especially important for the dressing.  Thank you, Iliana!

1 mango, diced
1 avocado, diced
watercress

Dressing:

juice of 1 lemon
2 TBS extra virgin olive oil
¼ tsp black pepper
½ tsp honey
½ tsp Dijon mustard
4 dashes of salt

Divide watercress, mango and avocado among 4 salad bowls or plates.  Mix dressing ingredients together in small bowl.  Pour dressing over each salad.  Serves 4.
