Avocado/Orange Salad

Submitted by: SCOTMAMA

Introduction

This is a meal in itself! The fat content is a little high, so you need to work it into your menu plan for the day, but the fat comes from olive oil and avocado, both of which are good for you!

Ingredients

    Salad Portion:
    3 oranges, peeled, sliced and cut into half or quarters
    2 avocados, peeled and diced
    1 Tbsp. red onion, thinly sliced
    Walnuts or Pecans, crushed into pieces, about 15
    12 cups chopped mixed greens (to be added later)

    Marinade/Dressing:
    1/2 cup olive oil
    1/3 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. each of pepper, paprika, celery seeds

    Mix well, pour over the prepared orange/avocado mix. Marinate for minimum of 30 minutes. Serve over 2 cups mixed greens. Lovely to look at, delicious to eat.

Tips

Rather than add this many calories to a meal, I like to serve this salad as an entree for lunch. It's very high in potassium as a bonus!
