Avocado, Endive, And Carambola Salad

The acid freshness of carambola (star fruit) lends just the right edge to the oily avocado, while brightly complementing its color. If you cannot find sweet carambolas, sprinkle the fruit with sugar.

4 servings
 

INGREDIENTS

· 2 tablespoons fruit-flavored vinegar
· 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
· 1 tablespoon hazelnut oil (see Note below)
· 3 tablespoons peanut oil
· 3 medium Belgian endives, cored and cut into 2-3-inch julienne strips
· 1 medium avocado (preferably Hass variety)
· 1 large carambola (sweet or medium-sweet), about 5 inches long
 

DIRECTIONS

1. Blend together vinegar and salt. Add both oils and mix well.

2. Arrange endive on a serving dish.

Halve avocado lengthwise. Remove pit and peel. Cut across on slant to make thin slices; arrange over endive.

3. Cut a central slice from the carambola and reserve. Halve rest of fruit lengthwise, then cut across in very thin slice. Place these over avocado; center the reserved whole star slice.

4. Drizzle dressing over all and serve.

Note: Hazelnut oil imported from France is available in fancy shops all over the country. You may substitute 1/4 cup light olive oil to replace both oils.
