One Californian's Favorite Salad

Total Time

If you like avocado, mandarin oranges, and raw sunflower seeds... well, give this a try! A typical native Californian, I love to create experimental salads; this one has gotten thumbs up from family and guests alike over the years, so I hope fellow Recipezaarians will enjoy it, too. We've particularly found it to be a nice complement to Mexican meals. Note: you can use any kind of salad greens you like, but IMHO, it's not really a Californian salad if *iceberg* is the only lettuce used! Just kidding -- the important thing is to make it how you like it, of course. Bon appetit.

This is a very refreshing salad! DH and I enjoyed it with fresh mandarin oranges and Balsamic Vinaigrette. Yum!! We'll be enjoying this combination again - Thanks :)

I love this salad. I really can't say any more than that. It is so refreshing and the flavors just go together so well. We've had it 3 times in the last week, once as the main dish and twice as side salads. Thank you, thank you!
