~ Orange - Avocado Salsa ~

This is a very old recipe from Southern Living or Cooking Light, I believe. It's quick, easy and refreshing with the oranges included.

1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
2 cups ice water
3 navel oranges
2 avocados, chopped
2 tablespoons lime juice

1/4 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste
Minced cilantro for garnish

1. Combine onion and ice water in a bowl; let stand 30 minutes. Drain well. 
(Soaking the onion in ice water takes away some of the sting.)

2. Peel and section oranges; cut orange sections in half crosswise. Place in a medium bowl. Add onion and avocado; sprinkle with lime juice and salt, pepper and cilantro, tossing gently to combine.

Always add the love ~

  1. This does sound so refreshing, Pat! It would be perfect on top of fish or chicken. xo

  2. I'm thinking this would be great in the hot summer time. :) Yum! I saw avocados in the Aldi ad for 39cents yesterday. Can you imagine?

    Are you feeling better this week?

  4. Pat you are speaking my food love language with this recipe. Thank you ever so much for linking up at Thoughts of Home on Thursday. Your presence adds such a ray of sunshine!

  5. Hi Pat, wow this sounds so good and refreshing. Thank you for sharing and the yummy photo to go with it.
    Thanks for the sweet email. I found out, the reason for the severe migraine and dizzy spells was a side effect to some meds I've been taking. I'm doing a bit better but trying to stay off the computer a bit. Not easy to look at the screen.
    Have a nice weekend ahead sweet friend. xo

  6. YUMMY! I love salsa, and I'm an avocado girl for sure. This looks great, Pat!


  7. Pat looks refreshing and yummy on top the Salmon. Any recipe that contains avocados I love, plus the texture and taste with the oranges and avocados has gotta be satisfying.
    Happy weekend,

  8. Hello Pat -I've just come across from Sheri's blog ...
