Mandarin Avocado Salad with a Lemon Onion Dressing. Refreshing, vegan and so delicious and it will keep you coming back for more. Perfect as a side dish.
Easy, quick to make and wonderful for the new Spring season.
This salad is a tasty combination of mandarin orange, avocado, sunflower seeds and sharp red onion on top of a bed of fresh romaine lettuce. It pairs so well with store-bought creamy lemon poppyseed dressing or a sweet onion dressing. But I share a delicious dressing recipe that pairs well with it that you can make from the comfort of your own home.
This salad is one of my favourites and I used to eat it daily before my wedding and I remember having glowing clear skin! It's filled with Vitamin C, Folate, and antioxidants which fight the skin-villains.
You can even add some protein of choice to this salad like tuna, chicken or a soft boiled egg to make it a complete meal. Alternatively, you may leave it as is to keep it vegan.
