ORANGE BEET AND AVOCADO SALAD RECIPE

Wonderfully fresh and delicious, this simple to prepare salad comes packed with flavor and nutrients.

This salad is light to the tummy and will be perfectly served with just about anything. Add in some shredded chicken and you have a healthy post-workout dish to die for.I used arugula as the leafy greens for my salad, however, spinach and other greens will work just fine.

I used a simple vinaigrette consisting of olive oil, vinegar, infused with lime juice and orange zest. This brought my salad to life.
