Title: Avocado in Tarragon Cream Dressing
Yield: 4 Servings
Categories: Salads, Fruits


1/2 ts Sugar
1/4 c Vinegar -- tarragon
2 Eggs
1 c Cream -- heavy
4 Avocadoes
12 Lettuce leaves -- Bibb

In a bowl add sugar to eggs and gradually pour in vinegar.

Stand the bowl in a pan of boiling water and stir until the mixure begins
to thicken, then turn off the heat and continue to stir.

When the mixure is thick, remove bowl from pan and continue stirring for
one minute. Season and cool.

Whip the cream till it holds a soft shape.

Place 3 lettuce leaves on a plate. Halve, seed, peel the avocados. Place
avocado half on the leaves round side up.

Fold the cream into the dressing. Coat avocados with the dressing. Sprinkle
with paprika and serve.

Tom's comments: I find the vinegar taste to be overwhelming. You may want
to remove one tb of vinegar or double-triple the sugar. The vinegar taste
does lessen with time, but I would not want to bet a meal on doing things
that way. I WILL do this again (I like it!) and shall try the things I
stated above.
