Orange Avocado Salad

I rarely eat salad, but this is one salad that I prepare whenever we need a healthy, low-carb lunch. The combination of these bright, juicy cara cara oranges and avocado creates a creamy yet refreshing salad. There is absolutely no guilt having this for lunch 🙂 Does Hillary and Ashley approve?


  • 3 cara cara oranges, pared and sliced
  • 1 avocado, peeled and sliced
  • 6 thin slices red onions, separated into rings
  • Salad greens
  • ground black pepper

Orange Dressing

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp grated orange peel
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp sugar (adjust to desired sweetness)
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Shake all dressing ingredients in a tightly covered container. Chill until ready to use.
  2. Arrange orange, avocado slices, and onion rings on salad greens.
  3. Pour orange dressing over the salad. Sprinkle with ground black pepper.
