Avocado Salad with Orange Vinaigrette

Avocado Salad with Orange VinaigretteI keep Spring Mix salad greens in my refrigerator fairly regularly.  Had a fresh carton I bought at the store yesterday and made myself one delicious salad for lunch today.  Avocados, although a little carb-y, add so much flavor and nutrients, I decided to splurge.  Since my husband cut an orange last night to make Pimm’s Cup cocktails for us, I decided to make an orange vinaigrette for my dressing.  It was very GOOD with avocado!  This salad is suitable for all phases of Atkins, Keto diets, Primal and Paleo as well.

    • We don’t really have a Pimm’s Cup recipe. Hubs just fills a 12-oz glass with ice. Then he adds a jigger of Pimm’s No.1, tops with Hanson’s sugar-free gingerale (it’s sweetened with Splenda) and puts a slice of orange on top (sometimes 1 marschino cherry if there are any in the house, if serving to company). Such a nice, fruity drink for spring or summer. 🙂
