Mango, Blood Orange & Avocado Salad

It has been so snowy, blustery, and plain old cold around here lately.  I have been dreaming of warmer climates and watching the weather of all my favorite warmer places –  SavannahKey West, Ocracoke, and Greensboro.  Sigh.  It is a little torturous at times.  To beat the winter blues, I made this salad over the weekend – it has three of my favorite fruits in it with just a smidge of lime juice and cinnamon.  It is a perfect healthy side salad, breakfast, or snack. 

First, peel 1 mango.  Slice off wedges.  Put into a bowl.

Next, slice the ends off of 1 blood orange.

Cut off peel and pith and then slice to create supreme wedges.  Hopefully yours looks neater than mine did.  Place in bowl with mango.

Slice 1 avocado and remove pit.  Use knife to cut vertical and horizontal slices in the halves (see above).  Use a spoon to remove slices and add to bowl with mango and blood oranges.

Toss with 1 teaspoon lime juice and sprinkle with cinnamon.  Enjoy!
