Do you know what month it is... California Avocado Month !! Since I'm on a continuous quest to live up to my name, I wanted to put together a fun recipe highlighting the kween of all fruits. I basically threw all my favorite things in a bowl and called it a day: fresh California Avocados, grapefruit, mangos, feta cheese, macadamia nuts. BOOM. 

Ingredients: 

  • 1 fresh California Avocado
  • 1 grapefruit
  • 1 navel orange
  • 1 mango
  • 1/4c macadamia nuts, toasted
  • 1/4c feta cheese, crumbled 
  • Microgreens, to garnish
  • 2T extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon

What you'll do: 

  1. Cut the avocado in half and slice it vertically, forming an avocado rose (they're easier than they look! Check this tutorial on youtube).  
  2. Peel and slice the grapefruit and navel oranges into circular discs, and peel and dice the mango.
  3. Toast the macadamia nuts until fragrant and set aside to cool. 
  4. Whisk olive oil and lemon juice together, set aside.
  5. Arrange citrus, avocado and mango on a plate. Sprinkle feta and macadamia nuts on top. Drizzle vinaigrette over salad and top with microgreens.
