Prepare quinoa according to package directions. Set aside.
Peel avocados and chop 1 avocado into small pieces. Mash remaining avocados. Peel and segment orange. Chop orange slices and remove seeds.
Combine quinoa, chopped avocado, orange pieces, almonds and onions in a large bowl. Whisk together mashed avocado, orange juice, honey, olive oil, seasoned salt and pepper in a small bowl. Add to the quinoa mixture and gently stir until well combined.
Spray four, 4-ounce ramekins with nonstick cooking spray.
Pack mixture firmly into ramekins. Cover with plastic wrap, pressing to cover entire surface; refrigerate at least 1 hour, until ready to serve. Unmold onto salad plates and top with salad greens, if using. Drizzle with vinaigrette.
