Orange Avocado Salsa is a bright flavorful salsa that's perfect for chip dipping!
This avocado and orange salsa highlights the best of winter produce.
Lately I can't get enough of oranges and avocados. During the winter months, I crave citrus and always looking for new ways to add citrus fruits into my diet.
I just love the combination of oranges and avocados. This fruit salsa is light, refreshing and perfect for chip dipping.
The citrus fruit and creamy avocado make the perfect salsa. The avocados have been so good lately. The buttery avocado paired with the orange
This salsa is bright, light and refreshing. It's perfect for entertaining too. This would also be great for winter and spring potlucks and parties.
- Oranges— I really like using Cara Cara oranges, but you can use any variety of orange.
- Avocados- If your avocados are on the large side, use 2 for the recipe or 3-4 medium sized ones. You want your avocados to be firm, but overly soft and ripe.
- Cilantro- Fresh, bright fresh cilantro is a must in a fresh salsa recipe.
- Onion- I prefer to use a red onion in the salsa.
- Jalapeño- For a little bit of heat, add one finely diced jalapeño.
- Lime Juice- Fresh squeezed lime juice is best for this recipe.
For this salsa you can use your favorite kind of orange. I really like using Cara Cara oranges. The seedless orange has a distinct pinkish-red and orange flesh.
The flavor of a Cara Cara orange is so unique. The orange is sweet yet tangy with less acidity. They’re available December through April. Be sure to pick up some Cara Cara oranges at the store before the season is over!
I love serving the salsa with tortilla chips. This salsa would also be a delicious taco topping!
