thanksgiving salad

I saw this salad on my friend Kathryn's recipe blog (here) and will be making it for Thanksgiving. Looks delish right? She says to double the recipe...

Salad:
2 bunches red leaf lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
2 avocados cut into ½ inch chunks
1 large pomegranate (seeds only)
2 pears, peeled and cut into ½ inch chunks
1 large red onion, sliced into thin rings
1 block of Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
1 bag almond slivers, toasted on low with butter and 1 heaping tsp. of sugar
2 cans mandarin oranges, drained
Dressing:
½ t grated orange peel
1/3 cup fresh orange juice
2 T red wine vinegar
¼ cup vegetable oil
2 T sugar
1 T Good Seasons dry Italian dressing mix

Mix the dressing ingredients and chill before mixing with the salad. Toss immediately before serving.

We double the recipe, with the exception of the lettuce, which we increase to 3 bunches. This salad is SOOO yummy. I hope your family loves it.
