as the end of summer nears, i feel the need to stock up on all my favorites (avocados, peppers, tomatoes, corn etc), because it just seems like it is going to be so long before these fresh summer fruits and vegetables will be back again. here are two wonderful salads that highlight everything wonderful about summer:

recipes by-

mark bittman: corn + avocado salad (bottom left)

kalyn’s kitchen: mango salad with black beans, avocado, mint + chile-lime vinaigrette (upper right)


i prefer to make my own salad dressings. i toss some oil, acid and herbs in a mini blender and purée. today i decided to use a lemon infused olive oil from adams’ olive ranch that i had picked up at the santa monica farmers market several weeks ago when i was following the farmers market fairy around for the day. i added some fresh lime juice, a little bit of avocado for creaminess, fresh cilantro leaves, and a touch of s+p.

it was really tasty tossed with all the fresh greens and colorful vegetables that i picked up yesterday at the hollywood farmers market.
