Avocado and Nectarine Salad with Chile and Lime Dressing

You wouldn't have ever set your neighbors up on a blind date, right? They seem like they wouldn't go together at all, and yet they've been happily married for 15 years. (I'm not talking about the Quiet Man and me, ahem, but I could be.) Some things just seem like they would never go together. Like avocados and nectarines. Who'd have thunk? But then they end up in a late night study group and fall madly in love and make beautiful babies-uh, I mean salad together. Mr. luscious avocado has a serious crush on senorita sweet juicy nectarine. Ooh, la la. It's not an obvious match, true, but once they got to know each other they refused to be separated. Have them set up house on a cozy little bed of mixed greens. Throw in a little savory feta for a wedding veil and you've got a match made in heaven. Don't listen to what the tabloids say. This couple's going to make it.
Notes:
This salad is perfect for using up your extra Chile Lime Dressing from the Mexican Grilled Corn below. Just squeeze in a little extra lime for some acid. Nectarines and other stone fruits are at their peak right now so you'll be able to get a swell deal. Use whatever greens are on sale this week. Spinach or romaine would be nice. You could make it a meal by throwing in some leftover grilled shrimp, tofu, chicken, or pork.
Avocado and Nectarine Salad with Chile Lime Dressing
Estimated Cost: $6.00 for four large servings
For the Dressing:

3 tablespoons mayonaise (or swap out Greek Yogurt)

Mmm. Had this tonight. But Anchorage is sold out of summer fruit by now, so I used frozen mango chunks instead. It was yummy! Next summer I'll try the nectarines.

When I lived in Whittier with my mom, we made a salad with avocado, nectarines, cashews, craisins, feta, and banana bread croutons. Yum. You are right-- they are a match made in heaven.

Though fashion replica watches swiss is not as luxurious as the fine jewelry, it does not mean that it can just go with anything.
