Adapted from Chatelaine Tex Mex Salad. I was puzzled by why this was called Tex-Mex. The lime? Once I found the source online, turns out that their idea was to serve the salad with beans on toast - so... kind of Tex-Mex. The photo here is missing the avocado - did not have one on hand... This is one of my favourite dressings for salads with dark greens.  Serves 4.

2 TB freshly squeezed lime juice
1 TB honey
1 tsp minced ginger
1/8 tsp salt
2 TB olive oil

4 cups baby spinach
1/4 quarter red onion thinly sliced
1 firm ripe avocado peeled and sliced

Whisk lime juice with honey, ginger and salt in a large bowl. Whisk in oil until combined. Add spinach, red onion and avocado. Toss until well coated. 


Notes and Tips...

  • Greens - I especially like this dressing with arugula - as pictured in photo
  • Red Onion - I like red onions, but some people are not fond of their "pungent aftertaste" - a quick soak in water solves that problem (Source).
  • Avocado - Avocado Central outlines how to pick the best; here's a quick video on handling them; another tip on picking a good one in the grocery store.
