Make a simple spinach salad special by adding avocado, spices and fresh cilantro. Make it ahead, refrigerate and then toss right before serving.
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 Hass avocado, peeled, pitted and thinly sliced
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
11 ounces baby spinach
How to Make It
Whisk lime juice, oil, cilantro, sugar, cumin, salt and pepper in a large serving bowl. Stir in avocado and red onion. Lay spinach on top. (Salad can be prepared and refrigerated up to 2 hours ahead.) Toss just before serving.
Very good. The dressing was a bit sweet but didn't overwhelm the avocado.

Delicious! I added tomatoes and green beans.

This salad was so flavorful. I omitted the onion since I didn't have it and used chopped celery for some crunch and texture. I let the celery and avocado sit in dressing, topped with spinach, and refrigerated until ready to eat, then tossed all together. I used about half the oil it called for, and still so delicious.
