Orange, Olive and Avocado salad


A lovely early summer salad to make use of the sweet oranges, avocados and young salad leaves which are in season right now.

To make it:
On a bed of torn mixed lettuce leaves informally arrange :
3 oranges, peeled, cut into slices and halved
1 large/2 small avocados peeled and sliced
12-15 kalamata olives

Drizzle over a dressing made from 3 tablespoons of olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice.
Pass the black pepper grinder separately.

Variations:
add 1/2 teaspoon of honey
and/or a pinch of toasted cumin and paprika to the dressing.
