Orange & Avocado Salad

Happy Tuesday to you ! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend and a fun and safe Fourth of July. A thunderstorm forced our cookout to move indoors, but luckily, the rain let up just in time for fireworks in the cul-de-sac {a tradition on our street}. And yes, here in SC it is legal to shoot your own fireworks any day of the year!
Anyway, nothing is better than a yummy fresh salad on a hot summer day. Here is a recipe {courtesy of Kraftfoods} that I love. My version uses regular dressing instead of low-fat and I’ve cut the serving size in half.
Here is a peak:
Doesn’t that look yummy?!  Here is the recipe:
Orange-Avocado Salad

You’ll need mixed greens, 1 can of mandarin oranges, 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced, and 1 avocado, chopped.

Layer the greens, onions, oranges and avocados in a large bowl.

Pour 1/3 cup zesty Italian salad dressing (I prefer Kraft) over the top.

Toss salad well, adding more dressing if needed. 

And that’s it! My favorite kind of recipe: easy and delish! Serve it up!

And enjoy!

  1. This looks delicious and easy. And pretty! Your photos are gorgeous. Do you mind if I ask what kind of camera you have? We are in the market for a new one, and your photos are always so great.

    Thanks and have a nice day.

  2. OH my gosh! That looks so yummy! I'd love it if you'd come over and link this up to our Wicked Awesome Wednesday party if you get a chance. I'm going to have a look around your blog.

  3. Speaking of the Kraft Italian dressings, just wondering if you've tried the Kraft "Free" Zesty Italian? I can't get enough of it and it's no fat and only 15 calories for 2 tbsp.! I was wary but I'm hooked now that I've tried it.

  4. You know, I love avocados and I love madrin oranges. . . but it never would have occurred to me to put them together in a salad. This is so pretty and colorful, especially with the red onion, that I could see it for a fancy "girly" luncheon 🙂
