Avocado and Bibb Lettuce Toss

1 Head bibb lettuce; separated
2 Belgian endives; separated
1 Head radicchio; separated, or 1 more endive
1/2 Sweet red pepper; or green

Citrus Dressing
1/4 c Orange juice
1 tb Red wine vinegar
1 ts Dijon mustard
1/2 ts Salt
1 Clove garlic; minced
1 ds Hot pepper sauce

Buy the avocados in plenty of time for them to ripen at room temperature. Prepare the Citrus Dressing ahead and have all the salad ingredients washed and dried.

Citrus Dressing: In bowl, stir together orange juice, vinegar, mustard, salt, garlic and hot pepper sauce; whisk in oil. (Dressing can be covered and refrigerated for up to 2 days.)

In large salad bowl, arrange Bibb lettuce, endive and radicchio. Cut red pepper into thin strips and onion into thin rings; add to bowl. Peel and pit avocados; cut into bite-size cubes and sprinkle over salad. Drizzle with enough dressing to moisten; toss well.

Makes about 8 servings.
