I remember this salad from 40 or more years ago when my Mom made it frequently, except she added thinly sliced red onion. I've made it many times but I'd never seen a recipe for it. I was so happy to see the dressing ingredients! I didn't have white wine vinegar so in a double recipe I added about 2 tsp of lemon juice and maybe squeezed in 1 tsp of fresh lime juice with white vinegar and oil. It was a very light and refreshing dressing, just as I remembered. I used 8 sliced cuties (peeled and thinly sliced in rounds) rather than the oranges and filled the bowl up with mixed spring greens and sliced 2 avocados, then tossed. It was an excellent salad served with stuffed pork tenderloins, rice and beans for our holiday dinner for 6. The salad is beautiful served in a big glass salad bowl. Update: since I wrote this review I've substituted strawberries, nectarines, and both together for the oranges, and all are delicious!
This is now one of my new favorite salads! We did chop things up a lot smaller - more of a chop salad - and added some green onion - super yummy! Had it for lunch one day, then went to the store to get another avocado so we could make another batch for dinner!
So simple, so tasty! The oranges and avocados go so well together and look so lovely. The citrus flavours of the oranges and the dressing are great with the buttery texture of the avocado. Thanks for a great recipe!
Absolutely delicious and refreshing and DH and I ooohed and aaahed as we ate it. It is, quite simply, perfect. Reduced for 2. A keeper!
I can't believe how such simple ingredients make such a fantastic salad! I used spring mix lettuces, added some fresh herbs other than that followed recipe as written! Thank you!!
Delicious! I used mixed spring greens and mandarin oranges...loved it!
What a wonderful & refreshing summer salad! The flavors worked well together and I enjoyed the slightly tart dressing on the creamy avacadoes. I added just a pinch of red pepper flakes also. Thank you for sharing your recipe!
I prepared this using an herbed salad blend mix of greens and Minneola Tangelos (instead of the oranges). The flavor was crisp and fresh and excellent. Wonderful salad.
