South of the Border Salad

This salad is a really nice treat in comparison to your typical garden salad. It mixes unique ingredients with a very different dressing. Prepare the fruits and vegetables and store them separately (coat the avocado in the lime juice before storing) and mix together right before serving.


3 large ripe Haas avocados, peeled and thinly sliced
freshly squeezed lime juice
1 large head curly leaf lettuce
1 head radicchio
4 seedless oranges, peeled and sliced thinly
1 jicama, peeled and shredded
1 cup halved seedless green grapes
1 cup halved seedless red grapes


1 very ripe haas avocado
1/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons honey
salt and pepper to taste
crushed red pepper to taste

Squeeze lime juice onto each slice of avocado and make sure the entire surface is covered. In a large flat bowl or individual salad dishes, place a ring of green lettuce leaves around the outside. In the center, place a ring of radicchio leaves. Arrange the avocado and orange slices on the green lettuce. Place the jicama on the radicchio. Sprinkle the grapes over the top. In a blender puree all of the dressing ingredients until smooth. Drizzle over the salad.
