AVOCADO SALAD WITH ORANGE VINAIGRETTE
COOKBOOK: Super Food Ideas Mag - Oct 2009
This salad was quite nice. It screamed out ‘summertime salad!’. I think I went overboard with the orange which made it a little too citrus in taste but I loved it anyway.
I served with a meat dish and this was a lovely side salad with our meal.
