“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.”

Directions

  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 was very good. I brought it to an evening picnic and it was a hit. I forgot to use the cilantro but it seemed fine. I didn't have an hour to pickle the onions but they were still a delicious addition.

Everything about this recipe sounded intriguing, so I was drawn to it and just had to try it! I made it EXACTLY as written, no changes whatsoever. The flavor was really good, but I felt like it might need an extra little something the next time I make it. I'm thinking maybe some finely diced jalapeno or a sprinkle of cayenne or chili powder. We really enjoyed the tangy avocado in the bottom of the glass. It went well with the sweet fruit. The cilantro really makes it and so do the pickled onions, so don't skip! I will make this next time I have a dinner party.

I thought this salad was amazing. Only changes I made were I didn't pickle the onion, left out the mango and used blood orange infused olive oil. Since I was taking it to a picnic, I mixed everything together instead of putting the fruit over the avocado. Everyone loved it! I'll be making this often!
