Orange and Avocado Salsa with Shrimp Tacos

Tonight I wanted a light and healthy dinner after a week of travel and more junk than I normally eat.

I made shrimp tacos with a fruit salsa – orange and avocado salsa.  It was a super easy meal to prep and very delicious!!!!

Orange and Avocado Salsa

  • 1 can mandarin oranges, drained
  • about 1/4 c red onion, chopped
  • 3 avocados, chopped (mine were on the small side – if you have bigger avocados you might not want 3)
  • cilantro to taste, chopped

Mix all ingredients.


We ate ours with shrimp tacos and cilantro rice.

This is a great summer meal – less than 20 minutes to the table, no oven required!!!
