Avocado and blood orange salad

for 2 servings

  • 1 blood orange, segmented
  • 1 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup manchego cheese, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  1. On each plate, layer the blood orange segments, avocado + manchego cheese. Start with the avocado, since it tends to be delicate. Blood orange tends to taint the color of cheese + avocado, so it's better to assemble on your serving plate versus mixing everything together in one bowl.
  2. Top the salad with the chopped walnuts. Remove the thyme leaves from their stems + sprinkle over the salad.
  3. Finish with a drizzle of olive oil + a sprinkle of salt. Enjoy right away so the avocado stays vibrant.
