instructions
1 Prepare & marinate the shallot

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the shallot; finely chop to get 2 tablespoons (you may have extra). Place in a large bowl; add the vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Stir to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 5 minutes.

2 Prepare the remaining ingredients

Meanwhile, halve and pit the avocado. Using a spoon, remove the avocado from the skin, then thinly slice. Peel the orange; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Roughly chop the peanuts.

3 Make the salad & serve your dish

To the bowl of marinated shallot, add the orange marmalade and 1 tablespoon of olive oil; whisk to combine. Add the spinach to the bowl of shallot vinaigrette; toss to coat. Serve the sliced avocado and sliced orange over the dressed spinach. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with the chopped peanuts and cotija. Enjoy!
