Try Orange Slices in Your Next Salad


This refreshing fruit is at its yearly prime and thankfully is bursting with nutritional prowess.  Along with a concentrated dose of immune-boosting vitamin C, oranges provide a generous offering of folate, fiber, potassium, calcium and vitamin A.  This nutrient profile sings heart-health, but oranges stellar package of cancer-fighting phytochemicals is even sweeter music for your health.  Enjoy them as a snack or add them to your salads for a healthy tang.

Here is my favorite salad recipe that includes oranges:

Spinach Salad with Oranges and Avocado

Serves 4-6

I love avocado with fresh fruit in salads!


  • 1  5 oz container  fresh organic baby spinach
  • 1 orange, peeled and divided into segments
  • 1 ripe avocado, sliced
  • 2 tbsp. chopped dill


Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Toss gently with dressing ( any vinaigrette best) just before serving.
