Thinly slice the red onion. Remove the avocado from the skin using a spoon. Thinly slice it horizontally and set aside.
In a bowl mix together the greens and dressing. Divide up into bowls. Top with oranges, grapefruit, red onion and sliced avocado. Sprinkle each salad with 1 T pomegranate seeds.
Combine all the ingredients except olive oil together in a blender and mix. Then with the blender on, slowly add the oil. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
If fresh mandarins aren’t available, you can used canned but choose the ones in juice not syrup or you can substitute with another citrus fruit that’s available at your local grocery store.
