Outside temperature this morning, 21.2 degrees. In my garden, 60.5 degrees.

It won't be long before I am harvesting my lettuce.  I am anxious to try Purely Primal's Cool Cucumber and Avocado Dressing on my salad.

Cool Cucumber Avocado Dressing

  • 1 avocado, ripe but not too soft, pitted and peeled
  • 1/2 medium cucumber, ends trimmed and cut into 1″ chunks
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and pressed
  • 10~12 sprigs fresh mint, leaves only (about 1/3 to 1/2 cup)
  • 3 small scallions, roughly chopped
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2~4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

I think I should have my first harvest in a couple of weeks.

Salad just doesn't get fresher than that unless you eat the seeds!
