Avocado Orange Basil Salad

Avocado, Orange and Basil Stacked Salad

  • 2 avocados
  • 3-4 navel oranges
  • fresh basil
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • coarse salt and cracked pepper


Slice the avocados in half (around the width of the fruit instead of lengthwise) and remove the pit.  Use a spoon to scoop them out of the skin and slice the fruit into thin circles.

Peel the oranges and slice into thin circles.

On four plates, alternate the avocado and orange slices with the basil leaves so that you have 3-4 layers stacked on each plate.  Drizzle with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Serve immediately.


Yields 4 servings.
