Orange, Avocado & Mâche Salad

Scott Phillips

Servings: six.


  • 4 medium navel or Valencia oranges
  • 3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbs. minced red onion
  • 1 Tbs. red-wine vinegar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 medium ripe avocado, thinly sliced
  • 5 oz. mâche (about 6 loosely packed cups)


  • Finely grate 1 tsp. zest from one of the oranges and put in a large bowl. Using a sharp knife, trim off the peel and white pith from the oranges and cut crosswise 1/4 inch thick.

    Squeeze two or three orange slices over a small bowl to yield 1 Tbs. juice; add the juice to the zest along with the olive oil, onion, and vinegar. Whisk to blend and season to taste with salt and pepper.  Arrange the remaining orange slices and the avocado slices to one side of 6 salad plates.

    Toss the mâche with the dressing, season to taste with salt and pepper, and mound next to the oranges and avocados.

    Loved this! I used a spring mix for the greens and it was delicious.

    This was a very light salad with a wonderful flavor. It was simple and worked well when paired with heavier entrees and sides as it offered different characteristics to break up the monotony of a rich heavy meal. It was lovely.
