Quick Facts

Servings: 8
Prep Time: 35 min.
A colorful and tasty salad--tangy, marinated onions are served over slices of rich avocado and juicy citrus.

Ingredients

  • Marinated Onions1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Avocado Citrus Salad2 oranges, peeled and sectioned (reserve peel)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar (or white wine vinegar)
  • 1 Tbs honey
  • 1 avocado, halved, pitted, and skin removed
  • 1 grapefruit, peeled, sliced, and seeded
  • 3 heads endive (or romaine lettuce)

Directions

  • Combine rice wine vinegar, honey, and water in jar with tight lid; shake until well blended. Add onions to the jar.
  • Shake jar to coat onions in liquid, then refrigerate overnight, or for at least 6 hours. If necessary, shake the jar a few times during the 6 hours to be sure the onions marinate evenly.
  • Grate 2 teaspoons of orange peel. Combine orange peel, oil, vinegar, and honey in a small jar with a lid; set aside.
  • For each serving, arrange endive and/or romaine leaves in a spoke-like fashion on individual plates. Portion orange segments, avocado slices, and grapefruit segments onto the center spokes of endive and/or romaine.
  • Lift marinated onions from liquid with a fork and transfer to the top of each salad. Drizzle with orange peel-infused dressing before serving.
