Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados.



  1. Alternate avocado slices and orange sections in a fan shape on each salad plate.
  2. Top with endive, watercress and shrimp, if using.
  3. Drizzle with dressing, sprinkle with pomegranate arils (seeds) and serve.


  1. Whisk dressing ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. The dressing will keep in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

Serving Suggestions:
To clean Belgian endives wipe with a damp cloth. Do not soak as they tend to absorb water.

* Notes: 1 large pomegranate will yield about 1 cup of arils.

** 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.
