    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!

    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!!


I live in a little house with my husband and my three "puppies" (all dogs are puppies to me, no matter how old they are). We have no children as of yet. I love to cook, but not to clean, and I won't cook unless my kitchen is clean, so I don't cook as much as I should. Some of my other hobbies are: role playing games, reading, SCA, garage saleing, and sewing. I am a pack rat, but I am trying to cut back on that, and I have far too many kitchen gadgets and cookbooks.(If there is such a thing.)
