I’m so glad that we all now know that avocados are so healthy. They are rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and they’re lovely and delicious, too. Customers enjoy them in this and many other dishes at Claire’s.


  • 2 large organic oranges (I like to use Valencia oranges)
  • 1 large organic red onion
  • 2 large organic ripe avocados


  1. Peel the oranges, then cut them into ¼-inch slices, picking out and discarding any seeds. Arrange them in a circular patter on a large round plate. Peel the onion, cut it into thin rings, and arrange the rings over and around the oranges. Peel, pit, and slice the avocados into ¼-inch
