RECIPE: Unbelievably Good Arugula, Citrus and Avocado Salad

I served this salad to dinner guests this past Friday night and turned around and made it again to party of 12 the following night.  It’s THAT good (and as always, oh so easy and healthy).  It is a variation of the yummy Barre3 online recipe— I highly recommend you check their stuff out! See previous blog entry about getting your tone on.

    This salad is super flavorful. I used juicy clementines instead of oranges and kept all the ingredients separate so my family could build their salad to taste. The kids loved the beets sautéed with a little sugar!
