Apricot and Pear Salad

First off - if you haven't noticed, the blog has a whole new look! It's been in the works for a few weeks now and I am very happy with the result! Please let me know if you can't find something. All of my pages have been updated - I pulled together the FAQ from all of the e-mails I have gotten, I added a disclaimer about the content of the blog, and updated the blogroll to include new friends and favorites!

We had a couple of friends over about a week ago or has it been longer? I'm not really sure. Life is a little crazy right now! Anyway, I made this for dinner, and they brought salad fixings over. The salad was awesome. Mike raved about it for a few days, so it got me thinking.... Mike's mother makes this red wine vinegar dressing that we love and I knew it would go perfectly with the fruit in this salad - ta da this salad was born!

Ingredients in the salad:
Spinach
Avocado, cubed
Pears, sliced thin
Craisins
Cashews
Dried apricots, quartered

Everything is to taste, if you love avocado use more of it, or you don't like pears, leave them out, etc.

Ingredients in the dressing:
1/4 cup of oil
2 and 1/2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon of sugar
A few dashes of tabasco
Salt and pepper




Enjoy!
