Fruit and Avocado in a Salad with Tarragon Dressing (serves 2)

Fruit and Avocado in a Salad with Tarragon Dressing (serves 2)

Fruit in a salad is a nice idea but took some getting used to – strawberries with balsamic vinaigrette, for instance. Walking along with dog, which is when I do a lot of my recipe thinking, a thought came to me of combining mango (I used the little honey mangoes as they have more of a taste and are easier to peel) nectarine, avocado, arugula/rocket with a tarragon dressing. Toss and dress the salad about half an hour before serving it to let tarragon flavor develop. This is a good ‘girlfriend’ lunch and perfect for summer when the fruits are ripe (have bought many a disappointing nectarine in my time).

1 honey mango – chopped into small chunks

1 nectarine – finely sliced

1 avocado – cut into small chunks

A couple of handfuls of arugula/rocket

DRESSING

1/2 tbsp. finely chopped tarragon

Juice of 1/2 lemon

2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper
