Serves: 2
  large California naval orange
  small California grapefruit
  ripe, Fresh California Avocado, seeded and peeled
1/2    Meyer lemon
1/2  tsp.  salt
slices  sourdough, toasted
  fennel bulb, very thinly sliced
1/2    red onion, thinly sliced
    California olive oil, for drizzling, optional
1/8  tsp.  sea salt, or to taste
1/8  tsp.  pepper, or to taste

As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados


  1. Using a very sharp knife, remove the top and bottom of the navel orange. Stand the orange upright and remove the rind and pith, following the shape of the fruit. Once all pith is removed, turn the orange on its side and use a paring knife to slice wedges free from the membrane of the fruit. Repeat the same method for the grapefruit and set aside while you prepare the mousse.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, puree avocados until smooth. Add Meyer lemon and salt and pulse to combine. Remove from bowl and top each toasted sourdough with half avocado puree. Top with supremed citrus, fennel and onion. If desired, top with olive oil and vinegar. Finish with salt and pepper.

Beverage Pairing: Coffee, hot or chilled tea.

Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
