Author Notes: I created this recipe to enjoy avocado in its simplest form, but with a little kick. The chile gives it a touch of heat, while the orangette dressing imparts a sweet-tart zip.MizChef


Serves 8

  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 small dried chile, crumbled
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest

  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  1. 1. In a small bowl, whisk together the orange juice, chile, olive oil, ½ tablespoon of the zest, salt, and pepper.
  2. 2/ Peel avocado and cut into thin slices (but not so thin that they fall apart). Arrange them on a servings platter and drizzle the dressing over the top. Taste a piece and adjust seasoning, if necessary. Sprinkle the remaining zest around the edges of the plate.
