Starburst Salad

Recipe By: Tina MacDonald

Serving Size: 2

24 asparagus -- thin spears (about 3/4 pound)
1 avocado
1 sweet red pepper
2 tablespoons Italian dressing
lettuce -- red leaf or butter

Steam asparagus spears until bright green, but still somewhat crisp.
Chill in running cold water. Slice red pepper into thin strips,
cutting off the curved bits at the end at the end of each slice, to
make thin straight strips. Finely chop the curved pieces taken from
the ends of the pepper strips. Peel avocado, cut in half and remove
stone. Slice each avocado half into six lengthways wedges. Arrange
lettuce leaves on two plates. Place a pinwheel of asparagus spears on
lettuce, alternating with red pepper strips. Center the six avocado
slices on top of asparagus and red pepper, center a small mound of
finely chopped red pepper on top of avocado. Drizzle each salad with
1 tbsp. Italian or other vinaigrette dressing.
