Tangerine & Avocado Salad
A good substitute for tangerines in the salad would be 5 navel oranges, divided into sections and each section cut into thirds.
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
4 teaspoons honey
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 Hass avocado, halved, pitted, peeled, and thinly sliced crosswise
3 tablespoons roasted sunflower seeds
1 In a large bowl, whisk together the lime juice, honey, vinegar, salt, and cayenne.
2 With a vegetable peeler, peel 3 long strips of zest from 1 tangerine. Cut the strips into 1/8-inch slivers. Peel the tangerines and separate into segments. Cut the segments crosswise into 2 or 3 pieces; discard any seeds.
3 Add the avocado, tangerines, and zest to the bowl and toss to combine. Chill until serving time.
4 Sprinkle with the sunflower seeds just before serving. Makes 4 servings
