Avocado Citrus Salad is a light, refreshing salad with avocado, grapefruit and oranges. I then toss in a homemade poppyseed dressing.
Avocado Citrus Salad is a recipe I make countless times throughout the summer. Delightfully refreshing this salad combines crisp garden greens with tangy orange and grapefruit. I topped this salad with creamy avocado and crunchy almonds. The dressing is a very tasty poppyseed vinaigrette. This exceptional salad is great served with grilled chicken, beef or fish. Adding shrimp to this salad also makes for a tasty lunch!
I love tossing nuts into salad, they add great flavour and a nice crunch. For Avocado Citrus Salad I used toasted slivered almonds , but cashews, pine nuts or even pistachios would go nicely as well.
