Citrus + Avocado Salad

Cara Cara oranges are a little sweeter than naval oranges and have a gorgeous deep pink color. They're fairly common, but if you can't find them blood oranges, naval oranges, or tangerines would make a lovely substitute. This salad is a perfect side dish as it is, but can be served over spring mix if you're looking for something more substantial.
