Citrus, Strawberry and Avocado Salad
8 cups fresh greens
1 medium navel oranges, jeweled
1 medium cara cara orange jeweled
1 medium blood orange jeweled
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
8 medium strawberries, thinly sliced
1 small avocado, peeled, halved, and sliced
2 oz goat cheese, crumbled
To make our citrus strawberry and avocado salad we start with a large bunch of mixed greens…
Next we want to prepare 3 different kinds of oranges. Jewel each orange. Slice up some avocadoes strawberries, and red onion rings. Soak the red onion in cold water for about 20 minutes to get them a little sweeter. This will help take some of the strong taste out of the onion.
Then top the greens with our citrus, then avocado slices, strawberry slices are next and then a few of the red onion rings. Finally we want to scatter some mild goat cheese crumbles on top.
Then to finish our salad we drizzle our strawberry poppy seed dressing over the top.
