Hi, I'm Brenda Cusick, the Avocado Diva, and today we're going to learn to make an avocado vinaigrette, and we're also going to use some turkey and make a delicious summer salad. The basic recipe for any vinaigrette is one part of an acid, in this case we're using red wine vinegar, to two parts of some kind of an oil. So to get started, I already put my vinegar in, whoops, and now we'll put in our spice mix. And next we're gonna use a very special, ancient tool, called a molcajete. Here's a fun part, we're just gonna smash up this avocado in here. This is a good thing to do when you're kind of angry at your kids, or your husband, you know. Get out your aggression with your molcajete. And as you can see, I have smashed up avocado. Now we're gonna scoop out some of this mash, and put it right inside of our vinaigrette jar. And about a quarter of an avocado is perfect. And then we're gonna pour in some oil until it reaches the little O mark on there, on here. So that was about a half a cup of oil. And it takes less oil than normal because I've filled it up with some avocado which has also filled with oil. Then we'll close that puppy up, give it a good shake. I'm going to use my favorite Avocado diva tool, and we're gonna just slice right through this avocado to its skin, you can hear it scraping. That gets out all of the minerals, and it makes some beautiful slices that I'm gonna put over here on the salad. And kind of a decorative pattern. So now I put the pretty slices of avocado on. We're gonna mound on some turkey that I cooked, and then we'll add some color with our heirloom tomatoes as well. And I think I will put a cover on this, and take it to a potluck with my very special vinaigrette. This is Brenda Cusick, the Avocado Diva.
