Orange-avocado mixed greens salad

This salad makes sharing oh so difficult! Tangy, Zesty and so yummy!

This is a newly-found recipe that looked delicious when I first saw a photo of it. I do love a good salad. Check out my Avocado Berry Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette for another favorite. I did notice that the serving size was "6," so I thought it might last for our entire family for a few nights. Well, I kind of ate the entire thing in one sitting. All by myself. So, I will keep the serving size as "6," but if you really enjoy eating, and salads in particular, you can make that serving size a "1" like I did.

Toss together in a large bowl:

8 cups torn mixed salad greens

1 avocado, sliced

1 11-oz. can mandarin oranges, drained

1/2 small red onion, sliced

Divide mixed salad ingredients amongst plates (or plate) and top with Italian or vinaigrette dressing.

Do I even need to tell you that I loved it? I didn't think so.
