Orange and Avocado Salad with Cranberry Dressing

A lovely winter salad. The cranberry dressing is just tart enough to perfectly complement the orange and avocado.


3/4 cup fresh cranberries

2 tablespoons water


1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon olive oil

red leaf lettuce

2 naval oranges, peeled

1 avocado, peeled

1/4 cup walnuts, toasted

Honey Tips

Honey Is Sweeter Than Sugar

Due to the high level of fructose, honey is 25% sweeter than table sugar.


Combine cranberries, water and honey in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to medium. Cook, stirring until most of the cranberries have popped. Remove from heat. Once dressing is cool, stir in mustard and oil. Chill.
When ready to serve place lettuce leaves on plates. Cut oranges into 1/4-inch slices and arrange on lettuce. Slice avocado, arrange on top of orange slices. Sprinkle salads with toasted nuts and spoon dressing on top.
