Blood Orange Avocado Salad with Macadamia Nut Oil Dressing

A wonderful, healthy salad for two packed with a lot of nutrients. Spinach is great nutritional ingredient for a salad however for this recipe Butter Lettuce was selected. One cup of Butter Lettuce is 5 calories providing about 30% of vitamin A. Sometimes it is nice to change it up a bit!
