Blood Orange & Avocado Salad

00:15:00

This recipe makes enough for one as a main or 2-3 as a side salad. There'll be more dressing than you need for one salad, and will last for 4-5 days, so you can use it later in the week. Also, if you can make it in advance, the dressing improves overnight. Adapted from Joy the Baker.
