Melon, Mango, and Avocado Salad

Melon, Mango, and Avocado Salad
  • 1 small red onion, very thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups small cantaloupe balls
  • 2 cups 1/2-inch diced seedless watermelon
  • 1 ripe mango, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1 cup loosely packed cilantro leaves
  • 2 ripe Hass avocados
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 thin lime slices


  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.
