I so rarely am one to be in love with the whole salad thing. I usually opt out of getting a salad, even when it’s free with a meal, because I am not a big fan of lettuce. Or kale. I think spinach is generally the only leafy green I’ll actively seek out. I’m sure this isn’t too much of a shocker considering how few salads I’ve created in the past (read: TWO salads total).

However, salads don’t have to have all those leafy greens, now do they? I prefer to get my green in through different means… Avocado!

Big surprise right? The avocado fanatic wants to find more ways to incorporate avocado into her diet… Crazy!

I have been trying to find just the right salad to kick off my upcoming holidays meals. I wanted something that wouldn’t be too crazy filling, but would also be creamy, tangy, a little fruity and downright addictive. Something to shake things up before diving into the classic staples we all see throughout November and December.

The pairing of orange, fennel and dried cranberries with the avocado is a match made in heaven. The creaminess of the avocado with the orange, fennel and dried cranberries dressed with a quick balsamic vinaigrette balances in such a glorious way.  It has all the flavors you could want in a salad, except a little bit more depth with the fattiness of the avocado.

It doesn’t matter what you are serving up after the salad, this refreshing seasonal salad goes with practically anything you can think up.

Or just make it for lunch and dig in!
