Baby Spinach Orange and Avocado Salad

Baby Spinach Orange and Avocado Salad

Here's a light and refreshing salad, perfect to accompany a light meal

After some research and fiddling and tweaking, I settled on this salad, and I think turned out pretty well…but I’ll let you be the judge of that…Here’s my recipe if you’d like to try it:

1 cups of baby salad spinach
1 bunch of watercress, washed and trimmed

2 large oranges, peeled and segmented
1/4 cup very thin red onion slices

1/4 cup coarsely crumbled feta or blue cheese
1 avocado (whatever kind is in season), sliced
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup of dried cranberries


2 tbsp. olive oil
juice of 1/2 lemon or 2 tablespoons pomegranate juice
freshly ground pepper
Kosher salt

Whisk the dressing ingredients in the bottom of a large salad bowl. Add the salad ingredients and toss until well coated.

Serves four
