I don’t know about you, but when I come home my mom pulls out all the stops and just lets loose. I might gain 10 pounds in the next few days but it will be well worth it. Last night with our steak and potatoes my mom made a mixed green salad that was to die for! It was full of fruit and rich creamy avocado, and I DEFINITELY went back for seconds. My mom used store bought salad dressing, but I think it would have been better with a little bit of homemade balsamic vinaigrette like JuJus and I have started using a lot.
Avocado and Orange Salad
Three large hands full of mixed greens
1 large orange, segmented (cubing would be fine as well)
1 avocado, cubed
½ cup feta cheese
Sprinkled handful of slivered almonds
There are a lot of variations, but this one is simple and quick. Most things you read about dressings say equal parts vinegar to oil, but I really like it with less oil.
½ cup balsamic vinegar
¼ olive oil
1 TBS Dijon mustard
Salt and pepper to taste.
Put everything in a jar, secure the lid and shake. Check seasoning and dress salad. Recipe in print-friendly format
