1 tbs lime juice
1 tbs apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
4 tbs fresh squeezed orange juice, about ½ orange

Not a fan of arugula? Feel free to replace with spinach, romaine, or your favorite leafy green.
Combine all the ingredients for the salad dressing in a jar, close it tightly and shake until the ingredients are well mixed.
Soak the onion slices in warm water with a dash of salt and 1 tbs lime juice for about 10 minutes.
Rinse and drain the onions slices.
Toss the arugula leaves with half of the vinaigrette.
Add the avocado slices, mango slices and onion slices to the arugula mix, drizzle the remaining vinaigrette on top, or serve on the side.
