"Tangy pickled onions and creamy avocados add a surprisingly savory bite to this crisp fruit salad. When served in a pretty martini glass, it makes a stunning first course."

  1. To make pickled onions, combine the thinly sliced red onion and the red wine vinegar in a small bowl. Cover; chill for at least one hour.
  2. Pour the orange juice into a large salad bowl. Whisk in the olive oil and orange zest; season with 1/4 teaspoon salt, and a pinch of black pepper. Toss the cantaloupe, watermelon, and mango in the dressing. Just before serving, stir in the pickled onions and cilantro leaves.
  3. Cut the avocados into 1/2 inch dice; place in a small bowl. Sprinkle with the lime juice, and season with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Stir lightly to combine. Spoon an even amount of avocado into the bottom of 6 large martini or wine glasses. Top avocado with melon salad; garnish each salad with a lime slice.

This recipe is a wonderful change of pace! I wasn't sure if the onions, juice and vinegar would be a good combination with sweet melons, but it was terrific. My family loved it. I didn't change ...

This was a hit. Pretty, colorful, and refreshing. Although it is involved to make, most of it can be prepared hours ahead and assembled at the last minute. This is the most interesting salad ...

Best fruit salad I have ever tasted! Festive, easy, wonderful.
