This salad is super fresh and light and goes great with your favorite mexican dish–like Cafe Rio Burritos!

Dressing:
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. grated orange peel
1/4 tsp. salt

Salad:
1 medium head iceburg lettuce, torn
2 cups torn red leaf lettuce
1 medium ripe avocado, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup orange juice
1 cucumber, sliced
1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced into rings
1 can mandarin oranges, drained

In a jar with a tight fitting lid, combine dressing ingredients; shake well.  Chill.  Just before serving, toss greens in a large salad bowl.  Dip the avocado slices into orange juice; arrange over greens (discard remaining juices).  Add cucumber, onion and oranges.  Serve with dressing.
