Avocado, Orange, Pomegranate, and Mixed Greens Salad

 
2 avocados, peeled, pitted, and diced
4 t. lemon juice
4 cups Boston or bibb lettuce, washed well, patted dry, and torn into bite-size pieces
4 cups red-tipped loose-leaf lettuce, washed well, patted dry, and torn into bite-size pieces
4 cups spinach, triple washed, patted dry, and torn into bite-size pieces
3 oranges, peeled, and cut into segments
1 pomegranate, seeds separated from yellow membrane
1 1/2 cups Sweet and Spicy Mixed Nuts
Pomegranate Vinaigrette
 

In a small glass bowl, place the diced avocado, drizzle the lemon juice over the top, and toss gently to thoroughly coat the avocado with the juice to prevent discoloration. In a large bowl, toss together all of the greens. Scatter the avocado mixture, oranges, pomegranate seeds, and Sweet and Spicy Mixed Nuts over the greens, and toss gently to combine. Top individual servings with the Pomegranate Vinaigrette.

Serves 6-8
