Orange Avocado Salad

Lately I've been very attracted to summer salads, or anything else that doesn't require any stove-top attention. I suppose it makes sense, who wants to be weighed down by anything with much substance at all during a mid-May heat wave. On days when it's particularly hard to function I feel more like water and watermelon for dinner than beef and potatoes. Of course it's much more difficult to convince my husband to eat anything green...or yellow...or orange (you get it yet?). So the last time it was just me and the munchkin dining I took the opportunity to throw together this orange avocado salad.
