  1. In the container of a food processor or blender, combine the lemon juice, Dijon mustard, shallots, vinegar, and parsley. Process until shallots are no longer visible. Slowly pour in the oil while continuing to blend. Blend in sour cream, and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Cut the avocado into quarters and remove the pit. Cut each quarter into 3 slices. Fan each quarter of the avocado towards the side of each salad plate. In a large bowl, toss the lettuce mix with tomatoes. Pour dressing over the lettuce and tomato, and toss to coat. Portion the salad onto the plates so that the ends of the avocado fan are showing. Sprinkle each plate with pine nuts, and garnish with a daisy bud.

Tasty and very spring like. Didn't have the daisies so I didn't include. Would be pretty for a ladies luncheon.

Nice fresh, bright salad. The dressing was nice, but, honestly, I liked it better before the sour cream. It was beautiful and just crisp and light. I didn't think the sour cream added much to it. I used a very high quality olive oil for this, and I think that is a key. Daisies, around here, get gobbled up before they leave the yard, so the lil yellow and white ones were out..but, I still added some live, big, colored blossoms for the character. I also used cherry tomatoes, out of preference.
