Yesterday for lunch I wanted something fun, and tasty and, well, "summery."
I happen to have a bunch of clementines so that's where I started.
Oranges are fun and tasty and summery. Right?
Now, to make them into a meal.
Thankfully because of this "Little Guy" I have something on hand I never really ate regularly before…
Yup, those be avocado chunks and he has always loved them!
I have grown to.
So I sat there with half an avocado and an my orange thinking, why not?
I combined them with a few other ingredients I had on hand and came up with a tasty salsa that could be used for pretty much anything. I ended up with tacos.
Here's what I did and how I used it….
- ½ avocado chopped
- 1 small tomato chopped (first one from the farm!)
- 1 small orange or clementine chopped
- 1 scallion chopped with stem (mine was a purple one)
- About 1 tbsp chopped fresh mint leaves
- About 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
- 1 tbsp lime juice
- pinch of salt
- 1 tsp green chili sauce
Put all the ingredients in a bowl.
This is the green chili sauce I use.
LOVE it. Less harsh than the red.
Let everything sit for at least a few minutes and marvel at what you can make with NO COOKING involved.
For my lunch I made quick tacos using lettuce, a handful of pinto beans, a scoop of the Avocado Orange Salsa and a sprinkle of fancy shredded Mexican cheese blend.
They were amazing!
