Even when you think you have only a small amount of stuff to move, it seems like somewhere in the process, all of a sudden you have an inventory explosion, or at least it has been that way for us. Seriously where did all of this stuff hide, until moving day?

But finally, we are all moved, and 90% put away, and back to eating meals together, cooked at home by one of us. Today we are going to the beach, for the entire day, as I start my new job tomorrow. Yesterday we ventured out and found the organic market, which we will definitely visit on a regular schedule. Everything was fresh and the prices more than fair.

One dish we will enjoy today is a salad composed of avocado and fresh pear slices, drizzled with this zesty dressing. It is a snap to make and uses two of my favorite flavors, lemon, and parsley. If you are a fan of a sweet and salty combination, sprinkle on some feta cheese.

Note:  As written this is a delicious, yet delicate dressing perfect for a composed salad, with the dressing served on top of the salad items. For a tossed salad, a salad dressing with more substance would be appreciated and to achieve that result, you will find suggested amounts in parenthesis below.
