2Navel oranges, peeled and diced
2large avocados, or 3 smaller avocados, pitted, peeled and diced
Place oranges, avocado, red onions, fresh herbs, and walnuts in one large bowl. Season with salt, pepper, sumac and pinch of cayenne.
Add lime juice and a generous drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Toss gently to combine. Add feta cheese on top. Serve with your favorite healthy chips.
Make-ahead tips: If you are preparing this for a party and want to work a little bit ahead, you can prep some of the ingredients except the avocados. Just before serving, you can peel and chop the avocados and add them in with the rest of the ingredients, then season and add the lime juice and olive oil, mix and serve immediately.
Serve it with: I love how versatile this avocado dip is. There would be nothing wrong at all with serving it the classic way--with your favorite chips or crostini as part of Mezze. But this satisfying dip would be just as welcomed piled on top of warm toast (similar idea to this), or as a fun side to a crispy Mediterranean trout or lemon chicken.
Leftovers & storage: this avocado salsa is best served immediately, but you can store leftovers in a tight-lid glass container in the fridge for 1 to 2 nights. Scrape off and discard any brown parts, and if you notice too much liquid, it is time to throw the leftovers away.
