Winter Red Leaf Salad
This simple salad celebrates winter produce while keeping things light and fresh! Add roasted chicken or roasted chickpeas to make this a meal.
1 head of red leaf lettuce, coarsely chopped
1 /2 medium red onion, thinly sliced (about 1 1/4 cups)
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 avocado, thinly sliced
Using small sharp knife, cut off peel and white pith from oranges. Cut oranges crosswise into round slices, then cut slices in half. Toss red leaf lettuce, orange slices, and red onion slices in large bowl. Add oil and vinegar and toss to coat; season salad to taste with salt and pepper. Arrange avocado slices on top of salad once plated.
