RELISH THE THOUGHT
Being in Southern California, we're lucky to have citrus and avocados at our disposal year-round. The varieties may change with the season - Reed avocados and navel oranges in the summer, Haas avocados and blood oranges in the winter - but still they're in the markets. And what better way to enjoy and celebrate this continuous bounty than to have them together, in a single bowl of relish/salsa goodness? None better we say! We'll help you with the shopping list, then head over here to get the recipe.
Here's what you'll need from the North Park Farmer's Market: grab a few avocados and limes for juicing along with a handful of oranges at Paradise Valley, some cilantro from Valdivia and finally green onions from JR Organics. You'll need a few more things, like a small red onion and a jalapeno from Suzie's Farm but then you're on your way to greatness. Serve the salsa over grilled fish from Poppa's Fresh Fish or have it as a snack with some tortilla chips.
