  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1/4 cup honey
Instructions
Make the honey citrus dressing

Make the Citrus Salad with Avocado
  1. Peel the fruits for the citrus salad being careful to take off all of the white parts.

  2. Cut all the fruits into circles, remove the seeds then cut into wedges.

  3. Arrange fruits on a platter. Peel and slice avocado into about 1-inch slices and add to sliced fruits.

  4. Finely chop the mint and sprinkle over the fruits. Drizzle dressing on top then toss to combine and serve.

Recipe Notes

1. To ensure your honey comes out of the measuring cup, first spread a teaspoon of oil around the cup then you can pour in your honey. That way the honey will slide out easily.

2. Be sure to take time to remove the seeds from the fruits when you cut them into circles. Some seeds could be hidden so take time to remove them all.

3. If you aren't serving the salad immediately, be sure to sprinkle some of the lime juice (the same lime juice for the salad) all over the avocado. That will stop it from oxidizing. 

4. Make-Ahead Tip: The night before, cut up all the citrus fruits and store in an airtight container in the fridge. Mix the dressing and store in the fridge. Right before serving, chop the avocado and the mint and add to the salad. Pour dressing over, toss and serve.
