Citrus Brussels Sprouts Salad

When summer fruit is ripe and ready to be eaten, it’s great to enjoy the sweet flavors as whole pieces of fruit and mixed into summer dishes. With a bountiful amount of homegrown oranges, I decided to make this salad which has citrus flavors as well as the creamy texture from the avocado.
