Yield: makes ABOUT 2 CUPS

Ingredients

  • 2 blood oranges
  • 1 ripe avocado, cubed
  • 12 cup diced red onion
  • 12 jalapeño, seeded and minced
  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • kosher salt

Instructions

  1. Using a serrated knife, slice the peel off the oranges removing as much white pith as possible. Place a mesh strainer over a small bowl; segment the oranges, letting the pieces fall into the strainer. Gently break up the segments into smaller pieces with your fingers. Set aside to drain.
  2. In a medium bowl mix together the avocado, onion, jalapeño, cilantro, lime juice and salt to taste. Add the orange pieces (discarding the juice) and gently stir to combine. Serve immediately.
