Citrus Salad Toss

by Mindy on August 1, 2008

This is a fabulous summer salad. I love all the fruit in it, and the salad dressing is just the right combination of sour and sweet. When I got married, Melanie made me a cute personalized recipe book of all her favorites. This yummy salad was one of them, and I have to agree that it is at the top of my list now, too.

Citrus Salad Toss
Submitted by Mindy ~ The Sisters Cafe

Romaine or spring mix
1 red onion, sliced
1 large orange, peeled and sliced
1 pt. strawberries, cut up
2 avocados, cut up
sugared pecans*

1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup lime juice
2 T orange juice
2 T sugar
1 tsp grated lime zest
1 tsp grated orange zest

*For sugared pecans, mix the sugar and pecans in skillet. Cook over low heat until the sugar melts, stirring to coat well. Be patient, this can take awhile. However, you want to be vigilant because when the sugar finally melts, you have to move fast. Put on wax paper to cool.

Mix all dressing ingredients and let sit for awhile so the flavors can blend.
