Orange Avocado Salad

This is just a easy go-to recipe for a nice festive salad. You can substitute grapefruit sections for the oranges if desired. Since making a vinaigrette is so easy, I don't understand why people have a refrigerator shelf filled with bottles of commercial salad dressings laden with chemicals. As a cancer survivor, I try to avoid chemicals and toxic food components.
