I have a new favorite salad. That’s a big deal because when I have a salad I love, I tend to eat it over and over again. I went through a feta + balsamic phase, a kale + tahini phase… now I’m into avocado + orange.

Reasons why this salad is awesome:

  •    It’s naturally vegan + gluten free
  •    You only need 5 ingredients
  •    It’s so freaking delicious

The creamy avocado and sweet orange slices give this spinach salad a wonderful flavor! It’s an easy weeknight side dish!


  • 4 cups of mixed greens or spinach
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 navel orange
  • 2 tbsp sliced almonds
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Dash black pepper


  1. Segment the orange by slicing off the top, bottom, and peels.
  2. Over a bowl, cut into the orange on the lines of the membranes to remove the segments. Squeeze the remainder of the orange to get the rest of the juice.
  3. Reserve the juice for the dressing. (You’ll want to end up with at least 1 1/2 tablespoons of juice.)
  4. Whisk the olive oil with the orange juice and add in salt and pepper.
  5. Dice the avocado and add to the mixed greens.
  6. Top with orange segments and almond slices.
  7. Dress just before serving.

I’ve made this twice in the past week. I made it for Alex and I and I made it for my family when they came to visit. I just can’t get enough. Avocados already have a standard spot on the grocery list, but I think I’m going to be stocking up on oranges so I can make this salad whenever the craving strikes! I have a suspicion that it could work well with mandarin oranges as well, and that would make this come together even faster!

Are you all staying warm and cozy this week? I worked from home a couple of days this week thanks to the snowfall but I was definitely getting cabin fever on Wednesday night. It was nice to be able to stay home so I could shake off the last of my cold, but I missed being around people! Luckily, I’ve got plenty of social events planned for the weekend so I think I think the extrovert in me is going to be pretty happy.
