cat washing itself
Hairball Salad With Saliva Dressing
 1 large Ripe avocado
2 cups Alfalfa sprouts
5 large to 6 carrots -- washed peeled and grated
Italian dressing
Paring knife
Mixing bowl
Carrot peeler
4 Salad bowls

With an adults help, cut avocado in half. Use a spoon to scoop out the pit.

Scoop avocado out of the shell and put in the bowl. Add sprouts to the avocado meat. Mash with a fork. It is ok to leave some lumps.
Set the mixture aside.

Divide the grated carrots among the four salad bowls.

Using your clean fingers and a spoon, make walnut size hairballs from the avocado mixture and arrange them on top of the grated carrots. Pour Italian "saliva" dressing over hairballs and serve. Serves 4 cat fanciers.

Sicko serving suggestion: Squeeze ribbons of chocolate icing "hairball" medicine out of a paper cone onto the backs of your guests hands to be licked off for dessert.
