Winter Citrus salad with Avocado (a great diet salad!)
« on: January 16, 2010, 01:24:40 PM »
This is another great salad for dieting or detoxing. Again- a good way to get down those bitter greens(which I'm actually growing to love, aren't you?). This has a very sweet dressing which helps to satisfy sugar cravings.
12 servings

Dressing Ingredients:
1 HUGE shallot clusters, minced
4 tsp olive oil
3 mandarins
2 tsp champagne vinegar

Salad Ingredients:
13c arugula and mixed greens (the kind with all the pretty red lettuce too)
2 oranges, supremed
2 med grapefruits, supremed
2 avocados, sliced

1. In a small pan, take the shallots and 1 tsp of olive oil, and saute until golden brown. Toss those into a small bowl and mix in the rest of the dressing ingredients, then set aside.
2. In a large bowl, mix all salad ingredients except avocados.
3. Toss the salad with the dressing until evenly distributed and then fold in the avocados(so that they don't get mushy).
