Let's Make It
Remove 1 Tbsp. zest from 1 orange; reserve for later use. Peel, then slice all oranges.
Combine spinach, orange slices, avocados, onions, jicama and nuts in large bowl.
Mix reserved orange zest and remaining ingredients until blended. Add to spinach mixture; mix lightly.
How to Peel Avocados
Insert knife into tip end of whole avocado until knife reaches pit. Rotate knife around pit until avocado is cut lengthwise in half. Gently pull avocado apart by twisting the 2 halves in opposite directions. Score avocado skin of each half into thirds, cutting just to, but not into, flesh of avocado. Using paring knife, pull back center strip of avocado peel. Then, pull back 2 side strips of peel.
Selecting, Ripening & Storing Avocados
Look for avocados that are either slightly soft or firm. Small light-brown markings on the peels are normal and won't affect the quality of the fruit inside. If mashing the avocados for recipe use, look for softer avocados. If needing sliced avocados, or if not using immediately, select firmer pieces of fruit. Avocados will continue to ripen after being picked. To ripen, place in paper bag and let stand at room temperature until desired softness. Ripe avocados can be stored in the refrigerator for several days.
Sprinkle with 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro before serving.
This flavorful dressing can be prepared ahead of time. Refrigerate up to 24 hours before using as directed.
