Antioxidant-rich cocoa nibs—crushed, roasted cocoa beans—are available in natural foods stores and specialty shops. They aren't at all sweet but add a lush, flavorful note to simple salads like this one. You can also sprinkle them on granola or cereal, blend into smoothies, or use as a substitute for nuts or chocolate chips.

  1. Mix citrus juices and whisk in olive oil in a slow stream until dressing is thickened. Add salt.
  2. Wash greens and place in a bowl. Pour dressing over greens. Add cocoa nibs and toss. Arrange avocado slices atop greens and serve.
