The buttery avocadoes and oranges with a light, citrusy vinaigrette make a perfect spring salad.

Serves 4


Citrus Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Avocado-Citrus Salad:

  • 4 navel oranges
  • 3 ripe Hass avocados, halved and pitted
  • 6 cups mixed baby lettuce


For the citrus dressing: Combine orange juice and lime juice in a medium bowl. Slowly drizzle in oil, salt and pepper, whisking vigorously until combined. If making in advance, re-whisk before serving.

For the avocado-citrus salad: Cut peel, including the white pith, from the oranges with a small knife. Cut segments free from membranes; set segments aside and discard membranes. Cut avocadoes into 3/4-inch-thick slices. Divide mixed greens among 4 salad bowls. Top with 5 avocado slices and 5 to 8 orange segments; drizzle lightly with dressing. Serve immediately.
