Making salad with avocado and orange:
Step 1: Prepare the salad mixture.
Rinse the salad mixture thoroughly with warm running water. Especially if you decide to use fresh greens from your garden, because it can simply contain small grains of sand. After washing, lettuce mix dry and tear with your hands or cut large leaves, leave the young greens as a whole.
Step 2: Prepare the Orange.
Rinse and wipe oranges with disposable towels. Then cut off the peel from them so that in front of you is one “naked” pulp. Cut it into thin circles, then set aside a couple to decorate the finished salad, and cut the rest into small cubes, but do not grind very much. And pick out all the bones between things.
Step 3: Prepare the Avocado
Divide each avocado in half, remove the bone from the core and peel it off. Cut the peeled fruit pulp into small thin slices.
Important: For the preparation of this salad, use only ripe avocados, they are soft and elastic, if pressed, it is better for a stiffer fruit to first lie down and ripen a little, and only then eat it or cook various dishes with it.
Step 4: We are preparing refueling.
Peel half of the red onion and crumble into very small cubes.
Wash the mint leaves, dry with towels and cut into thin strips.
In a bowl, mix lemon juice, salt and black pepper. When the spices dissolve, add olive oil and honey. With a whisk, shake everything until smooth. And at the very end it remains only to pour out chopped onions and mint leaves into the dressing.
Step 5: Mix the salad with avocado and orange.
In a deep plate, mix salad mixture, avocado pulp, slices of orange and previously cooked honey-oiled dressing. Mix the salad with special tongs or spoons very carefully so as not to crush the pulp of the fruit.
Step 6: Serve the avocado and orange salad.
Serve the salad with avocado and orange immediately after preparation, carefully placing it on portioned plates. This salad is good both on its own and as a side dish for meat or poultry. If you serve a salad with avocado and orange on a festive table, you should not mix it right away, it is better to lay it on portioned plates in layers: greens, avocado, orange; and pour the dressing on top. You will see for yourself that this dish looks even more spectacular and original.
