    My husband and I thought this salad was great! I substituted canned mandarin oranges for the fresh oranges and pepitas for the pine nuts. A new favorite and something we'll be enjoying often!

    While I loved it, husband wouldn't eat taste it and he likes avocados and oranges but he didn't want the two together. I did put the orange yogurt dressing on the salad.

    Very pretty colors for presentation. Husband and I like both oranges and avocados but thought the combination was "acceptable"; not what we're used to. Husband did not want a dressing put on top, so I didn't do that. Might make again. Certainly a quick and easy side that allows more time to prepare the main course.
