Incredible Black Friday Sales!
I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving meal. There are three black Friday sales I just have to share with you before they are gone! If you have had your eye on an Instant Pot (affiliate link) now is the time to buy. They are on sale for less than I have ever seen them before (as low as $78!!! What???). And Blendtec (the best blender ever!) is also having a fantastic sale on refurbished blenders: $50 off the sale price and free shipping! And last my favorite clothing and home store is having a 25% off EVERYTHING sale with code SHOPTOIT !
Now on to The Recipe!
On the off chance you ate too much yesterday and need to lighten it up today, I present The Blueberry and Avocado Salad with White Balsamic Vinaigrette.
This salad tastes as good as it looks, maybe better!
You can keep this salad assembly only by using raw pecans or make it a little more fancy by caramelizing them. (Recipe link below)
The white balsamic vinaigrette is made with my favorite Prelibato White Balsamic Vinegar, olive oil and raw honey. I kid you not when I say this vinegar is so smooth and creamy you could drink it straight out of the bottle!
Drizzled on a bed of peppery arugula sweetened with berries and grapes this dressing is perfection!
And as a Californian it is my civic duty to add avocados to everything!
The Recipe: The Blueberry Avocado Salad
Tips and what you will need: Use the best and freshest produce. When a recipe calls for so few ingredients they all need to be top notch! I recommend Prelibato White Balsamic Vinegar from Italy! If you would like to caramelize the pecans you can see the recipe and video tutorial here.
- For the salad:
- 4 cups organic baby arugula
- half a cup fresh blueberries
- ¾ cup grapes, sliced in half
- 1 ripe avocado, diced small
- handful raw pecans (or caramelized, recipe in summary above)
- Crumbled Feta or soft goat cheese
- White Balsamic Vinaigrette:
- ½ cup quality extra virgin olive oil

- few turns freshly ground pepper
- Place greens, fruit, avocado, nuts and cheese on a platter. Dress lightly and toss.

Enjoy friends! ~ Linda Spiker
