A big plate of fresh salad is always a good idea, especially if it includes my favorite avocados and cucumbers. This spicy salad is a perfect way to start the weekend. This easy and tasty salad comes together in no time and is full of flavor thanks to fresh orange juice spicy dressing.
This colorful salad is filled with juicy snack tomatoes and creamy avocados, flavored with fresh orange juice and lime. It’s a great salad recipe that is a mix of fresh ingredients paired with delicious toppings to give it a whole new texture.
Homemade salad dressings are my favorite. They are so much better than the store-bought versions and healthier. You get to control what goes into them and skip out on all the preservatives. Oranges (My Favorite Fruit) make a great base for any salad dressings because they are naturally sweet, a little acidic.
Dressing made with fresh orange juice adds a tangy and sweet flavor to any salad or wrap. I love salads especially when they are tossed in fresh, healthy homemade salad dressings. Give it a quick mix with some spices and it’s done.
These days it’s easy to get creative with so many options. Rather than thin slices or half-moons, the spiralizer transforms cucumbers into curly noodles. For making cucumber noodles I used a julienne peeler. Cucumbers also support healthy digestion since their skins contain insoluble fiber which helps food move more smoothly through your digestive tract. A lack of fiber in the diet is a huge contributor to constipation. So basically, eating cucumber noodle salad is not only delicious but really good for you.
