Avocado And Orange Salad

If it’s true that you eat with your eyes first, then let’s start there. With invigorating hues of  orange and bright green, this salad does not disappoint! And as appet-EYE-zing as it looks, the taste is even more uh-MMM-azing!

Avocado Orange Salad

Avo lovers will need no encouragement to dive right into this spectacular salad. But if you are on the fence with avocado devotion, this salad is the perfect place to start! The intriguing combination of flavors and textures in this avocado orange salad play so well together. Not one ingredient overpowers another. But this salad, packed full of nutrients, is a power-play for your day!

Benefits

Avocado is loaded with nutrients and full of good fats. As a result, this helps your body absorb nutrients from plant foods. Consequently a win-win in this salad recipe from Bronner’s 2nd edition of “Flavorful Favorites.” Oranges host their own vitamin and mineral benefits like vitamin C, calcium and magnesium, just to name a few.

Should I keep going?! Because I can!

Salad The Right Way

This salad is SO SATIATING!! Nothing is worse than when you’re trying to “eat healthy” only to find yourself scouring the kitchen a half-hour later from (what feels like) starvation … Okay, that might be a bit dramatic. But I’m sure someone else has felt this way, too. (Please tell me I am not the only one?!) I have found that adding good fats like avocados and walnuts to salads staves off the aforementioned side affect from skimpy salads. As a result, I’m full for HOURS! In addition, I know my body is absorbing all the nutrients properly, which makes me feel like I am not eating salad in vain.

Despite the fact that I’ve had avos in many different types of dishes, I’d never had them paired with oranges, like this. And can I just say, WOW!? Creamy avocado and sweet juicy oranges are balanced by the tang of feta cheese and onions on a flavorful palette of fresh, crisp lettuce.

Moreover, this citrus salad had me saying,

You're All I Avo Wanted.
