TIPS FOR MAKING APPLE AVOCADO SPINACH SALAD:

When preparing the dressing, I recommend shaking the ingredients together in a jar rather than whisking them together in a bowl, as I find the vinaigrette emulsifies much more easily that way. If you are making this salad in advance for a party, do not add the dressing until you are ready to serve. This will keep the salad crisp and prevent it from becoming soggy.
