  1. Combine orange peel, lemon peel, lemon juice, and sugar in a small bowl. Stir until well blended. 
  2. Spoon half of the melon balls, avocado, oranges, and raspberries in a shallow pan, such as a 1 1/2-qt casserole dish. Repeat layers. Do not toss. Drizzle citrus mixture evenly over all.

Serving Suggestions: May serve in individual bowls or wine goblets and spoon equal amounts of the citrus mixture over each serving.

Cook’s Tip: Using a shallow pan, allows the juices to absorb into more of the ingredients.

Beverage Pairings: Water with lemon or lime slices, or for a festive brunch try with a flute of champagne.

* 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.
