Romaine hearts salad with Mandarin Oranges, Almonds, Tuna, with Avocado oil and Orange Vinaigrette

1 head Romaine Hearts

1 Dole mandarin orange slices in fruit juice

Sliced almonds

One pouch of Starkist low sodium tuna in vegetable broth

Just get a large salad bowl and rip up the romaine hearts lettuce with your hands. Assemble all the ingredients in a artistic fashion using the amounts that you personally would like to have on it. I used about 1 tablespoon of sliced almonds, and I used about 2 tablespoons of the avocado orange dressing which is really high in monounsaturated fat.

Fresh Orange Avocado oil Vinaigrette

4 tablespoons avocado oil. I used La Tourangelle brand Artisan oil

6 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice

Two teaspoons honey

2 teaspoons or more of freshly grated orange peel

Salt and pepper to taste or you can use the mrs. Dash garlic and herb salt-free seasoning instead like I did.
