Avocado and orange salad

This is a very flavorful salad. I leave out the citrus fruits –my naturopathic doc says no citrus (oranges, etc) because they raises blood glucose levels and also cause inflammation which leads to things such as heart disease, arthritis, etc. So, I make this salad with things like dried cranberries or fresh mango.

Ingredients:

  • Red or green leaf lettuce
  • 1/2 large avocado per person
  • 1/2 orange per person (or substitute another fruit)
  • 1/8 medium red onion per person
  • 3 T fresh lime juice
  • 1/3 C EVOO
  • 1/4 C fresh cilantro
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

Peel oranges, remove membranes, and separate into segments. Peel onion and cut into thin crescents. Peel, and pit the avocados then cut into chunks. Tear lettuce into bite sized pieces.

Put lettuce, avocado, oranges, onions in a bowl.

Next, chop the cilantro. Then, juice the lime.

Salad Dressing Instructions:

Put lime juice, cilantro, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Mix together well using a whisk or a fork. Then whisk in olive oil.  Makes enough for 4 servings.

Plate the salad. Drizzle with salad dressing. Enjoy.
