  1. Alternate avocado slices and orange sections in a fan shape on each salad plate.

  3. Drizzle with dressing, sprinkle with pomegranate arils (seeds) and serve.


  1. Whisk dressing ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. The dressing will keep in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

Serving Suggestions:
To clean Belgian endives wipe with a damp cloth. Do not soak as they tend to absorb water.

** Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
