Citrus & Avocado Salad over Spinach

It is citrus season here in Texas, folks!  Right now I am all about citrus — and nothing to me sounds better than coming in from the heat and enjoying a refreshing salad.

I decided to use my salad as a side to some beef patties I made for dinner, but you can definitely find a way to incorporate some protein in it if you’re looking for a one-stop meal kind of thing.  Some cubed up chicken or some shrimp would go nicely.

 

The following amounts will yield 2 servings.

 

Ingredients

  • 1 small fennel bulb, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium orange, peeled & segmented
  • 1/2 large grapefruit, peeled & segmented
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • 1 tsp. fresh mint, finely chopped
  • 4 cups baby spinach
  • 2 tbsp. fresh orange juice
  • 1 tbsp. fresh grapefruit juice
  • 3 tbsp. EV olive oil
  • pinch of Himalayan pink salt
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

 

Process

  1. Combine the fennel, red onion, orange, grapefruit, avocado & mint in a bowl.
  2. Whisk the orange juice, grapefruit juice, olive oil, salt & pepper in a small bowl until it is well blended.
  3. Add the dressing to the salad ingredients and toss gently.
  4. Divide the spinach onto two plates, and top with the salad.
