Fancy Avocado Apple Salad

Serves 6 to 8

Ingredients:

  • 2 to 3 strips vegan bacon, cooked until crisp, crumbled

  • 2 ripe but firm avocados, halved, pitted, peeled, diced

  • 2 apples, cored, diced

  • 1/4 cup minced red onion

  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 1/4 cup prepared vegan pesto

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 long cucumber

  • Fresh fennel fronds for garnish


Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine bacon, avocado, apple, and lemon juice, tossing to combine.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together oil and pesto to thin pesto to a drizzling consistency.

  3. Drizzle just a bit of pesto into avocado mixture and toss gently. Season with salt and pepper.

  4. Use a sharp vegetable peeler to slice cucumber lengthwise into thick strips.

  5. For each salad, set cucumber slice on its side on a salad plate and bring ends together to make a circle. Fix ends together with a cocktail toothpick or regular toothpick (just make sure to tell your kids and dinner guests it's there).

  6. Fill each cucumber circle with avocado salad. Drizzle salad and the plate with pesto.

  7. Garnish with fennel fronds.

  8. Serve immediately.
