The citrusy salsa sounds wonderful to me, I'll be trying this one.

This simple salsa balances the sweetness of blood orange with lime, jalapeño, and avocado.

  3. Gently break up the segments into smaller pieces with your fingers. Set aside to drain.
  4. In a medium bowl mix together the avocado, onion, jalapeño, cilantro, lime juice and salt to taste.
  5. Add the orange pieces (discarding the juice) and gently stir to combine.
