This recipe has all the components of a good winter salad: stiff, leafy greens; some nuts for texture; avocado (because duh); and citrus. But not just any citrus! This salad uses Cara Cara oranges which are sweet, light, and less acidic than navel oranges. It's a great excuse to pick a couple of these oranges up at the grocery store tonight.

The recipe calls for this great red wine vinaigrette, too, which has shallots, Dijon mustard, and red wine vinegar. I can see that pairing perfectly with the sweet oranges and cool avocado.
