Slice the avocados in half, remove the pit, then lift out the fruit & dice into bite-size pieces.


Peel then remove the seeds from tangerines…slice the fruit into sections by cutting through the actual sections, which will create a prettier salad. Toss the tangerine sections with the diced avocado in a bowl……mixing the two fruits together will prevent the avocado from oxidizing & turning brown……you can refrigerate the combined avocados & tangerines a couple of hours before ready to use.


Combine the vinaigrette ingredients & refrigerate at least a couple of hours before using.


In a large bowl, add half of each clamshell of salad greens, tearing or slicing the larger leaves into smaller ones, then add the fruit……toss, add the vinaigrette, a couple tablespoons at a time, and toss well to coat the greens and fruit. Add more vinaigrette, as desired. Serve immediately!

Cooks' note:
For parties…actually anytime I am serving salad, I love prewashed organic greens, as it makes our lives so much easier!
You will have close to a cup of vinaigrette, and it should last a week or so…the vinaigrette is terrific also as marinade for poultry, fish & shrimp!
To double the salad for a larger group or dinner party, use both clamshells & double the number of avocados & tangerines…
