This recipe is perfect to make when you’ve got an abundance of fruit that needs to be used up. We’ve used an orange but depending on what’s in season you could also use pineapple or berries like strawberries, blueberries, or even blackberries. Choose a ripe avocado—one that feels lightly soft to the touch but not mushy. If you like a spicy salsa, stir some of the jalapeño seeds into the salsa. Just add small amount at a time until you achieve your desired heat level. For an easy side dish, toss some lime juice, green onion, and cilantro with either black beans or brown rice.
