Mom's Avocado & Orange Salad

PHOTO: eclecticdomestic.com 

This is a recipe that my mother used to make in the summer when I was a kid. 


My mom grew up in Florida, where avocados and oranges were plentiful. This was her "go-to" summer salad that goes well with just about anything.


I had completely forgotten about this wonderful dish until one day a few years ago I was slicing avocado onto my garden salad and suddenly it was just there again! 


Its now a permanent part of our regular weekly dinner menus all summer long.

Versatile and delicious, this is the most refreshing and easiest summer salad you will ever make! 


Mom's Orange & Avocado Salad: (Serves 2-3)


2 ripe Avocados 

2 medium Naval oranges

Olive Oil

Salt

Black Pepper 



Peel, remove membrane from orange, and cut everything into chunks.

Place in a medium size bowl and drizzle 3-4 TBS olive oil over fruit. Mix well.

Add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.

Let sit for about 10 minutes or chill in refrigerator overnight.

Serve cold or at room temperature. If necessary, adjust olive oil and spices before serving.

Enjoy as is or with crumbled feta cheese and sliced Italian rolls.


TIP:

You can squeeze a tablespoon or so of lemon juice on avocado so it does not turn brown, but I doubt the salad will last long enough to turn color! Enjoy!
