I am addicted to a great super-simple salad. It is basically baby spinach, orange segments, avocado and sliced almonds. The orange segments make the salad so juicy, that I don't even need a dressing, although there is an orange vinaigrette for those who would like one. It is refreshing and quick to fix (not to mention it also goes with anything from the grill).
4 cups fresh baby spinach
2 oranges, peeled and sectioned
1 large Haas avocado peeled, and sliced
2 tablespoons sliced almonds toasted
This recipe makes 4 salads. Rinse and dry baby spinach and divide onto four plates. Slice the ends of the orange off and use a knife to peel the orange. Slice in between the segments so you get only the best part of the orange. Arrange the orange and avocado on the spinach and top with toasted nuts.
In a jar, put 1/3 cup fresh squeezed orange juice, 1 teaspoon finely shredded orange zest, 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar, 2 teaspoons salad oil, 1/8 teaspoon salt, dash black pepper. Put the lid on the jar and shake well.
