1/4 cup cold-pressed virgin coconut or olive oil

1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
2 kiwis, peeled, sliced and quartered

In small saucepan over medium heat, bring vinegar and tarragon to a boil; set aside to cool. Whisk together the vinegar and mustard, then gradually add oil, beating until well blended. Season with salt and pepper.

Place the spinach in a large mixing bowl. In a medium bowl, drizzle lemon juice over avocado cubes before tossing in salad to prevent browning and enhance flavor.

Gently mix avocados, onions and kiwi into spinach, and pour in salad dressing and toss evenly to coat.
