Avocado and Strawberry Salad with Orange Vinaigrette Print Email

2 navel oranges
1 pint strawberries, quartered (2 cups)
2 avocados, halved, pitted, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 TBS plus 1 tsp fresh lime juice, divided
2 TBS extra-virgin olive oil
6 cups baby arugula (4 oz)
4 oz mild goat cheese, crumbled

Cut peel, including all white pith, from oranges. Working over a bowl, cut segments free from membranes. Reserve any juice in another bowl, squeezing membranes for more juice. Gently toss together orange segments, strawberries, avocados, and 1 tsp lime juice in a bowl.

Whisk together oil, remaining TBS lime juice, 3 Tbsp reserved orange juice, and 1/8 tsp each of salt and pepper.

Toss arugula with dressing and divide among 6 plates. Top with avocado-strawberry mixture and sprinkle with cheese.
