This easy salad is perfect for a hot day and it is very filling. You wouldn't think this mixture of apples, avocados, blue cheese, and tangerine dressing would go together, but it's wonderful!

I love this salad. My company loved this salad. The only thing i did differently was not to juice the mandarin oranges. I used canned mandarins and purreed them in my hand chopper. Tasted delicious in the salad. Also added 1 tsp of honey to the dressing. Great flavour combo's in this salad.

The citrus vinaigrette is a nice counterbalance to the salad, providing just a touch of needed acidity to the richness of the salad componets. I did add a pinch of sugar despite having used a meyer lemon (could have been the oranges that were less sweet than expected), but otherwise followed the recipe. ~Tip to take the 'bite' out of raw red onion : Blanch sliced onion 15-20 sec in boiling water, then shock in ice water; chop as needed~. Thanks Donna.
