Spinach Orange Salad


Yesterday Night we had 4 course menu. I prepared Corn soup, Spinach Orange Salad, Roasted Asparagus and Veggie Pasta . I served this along with a glass of Kianti. Everthing tasted awesome.I will start my today’s blog with a simple salad Recipe that can be prepared in no time.

Ingredients

1)Baby Spinach.
2)3-4 Orange.
3)1 tablespoons honey
4)1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
5)3/4 cup olive oil (you choice)
6)1 avocado, peeled, seeded, cubed( if you have it available )
7)1/2 cup chopped red onion

Steps

1)Peel the orange very carefully as we need it’s zest in the salad (If you dont like it you can skip this step)
2)With a thin, sharp knife, cut the bitter white pith from the oranges. Cut in between the membranes to release the segments. Reserve the segments in a separate bowl and whatever is left squeeze it use that as a orange juice. Put that on top of oranges.Add onion and mix it well.Add avacado pieces and mix it well again.Add orange zest as well and mix it well.
3)In another bowl add olive oil and put spinach. Mix it well with tongs.
4)Add orange , onion mixture into spinach bowl.
5)Add salt and black pepper while serving it.

*If you like almonds then caramalize it and add. I did not want to spend more time so I avoided that step 🙂
