Orange and Avocado Salad

- 1/2 head Romaine Lettuce
- 1 orange
- 2 semi soft avocados
- 2 slices red onion, chopped
- 1/2 cup (120 ml) walnut halves, toasted
- freshly ground pepper

- 4 tbsp (60 ml) orange juice
- 1 tbsp (15 ml) lemon juice
- 1/2 tbsp (8 ml) vinegar
- 1/4 tsp (1 ml) salt
- 3 tbsp (45 ml) vegetable oil

Tear the lettuce into pieces and arrange on four individual salad plates. Peel the orange and remove the slices by cutting along the membranes. Remove any seeds or pith.

Peel and slice the avocados into bite sized pieces. Place them in a bowl with the chopped onion and orange slices.

To toast the walnuts, place in a non stick pan over medium heat for three or four minutes, tossing a few times.

Combine the ingredients for the vinaigrette and whisk well. Add to the avocado/orange/onion mixture and toss. Place the mixture over the lettuce on the four salad plates.

Top with freshly ground pepper and the toasted walnuts.

Serves 4.
