    We’re goin’ green today in honor of the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day.

    I offer you my favorite Irish toast:

    Wherever you go and whatever you do,
    May the luck of the Irish be there with you.

    I’ve brought my lucky salad, made with the very special Ojai Pixie tangerines, California avocados and red radishes. Pixies are sweet, petite and ready to eat, straight from the family farms of California’s Ojai Valley. They have a relatively short season, starting right now, so get them when you see them. If you can’t find them, of course feel free to use other tangerines.

    Recipe: Pixie Dust Salad with Avocados, Pixie Tangerines and Radishes

    Summary: Creamy avocado meets super sweet Ojai Pixie tangerines in the presence of cumin and chives. Magic ensues.


    • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
    • 1 ½ teaspoons Vanilla-Infused Olive Oil (or use regular extra-virgin olive oil)
    • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
    • Pinch kosher salt
    • 2 Ojai Pixie tangerines
    • 1 California avocado
    • 2 radishes
    • Garnish: 1-2 tablespoons finely minced chives


    1. Add lemon juice, olive oil, cumin and salt to a large salad bowl and stir to combine (this is the dressing).
    2. Peel and section the tangerines. Cut each section into 3 chunks; add to the bowl. Cut the avocado in half, remove pit and peel and dice the flesh; add to bowl. Remove greenery and root from radishes, wash, dry and cut into tiny matchstick pieces; add to bowl.
    3. Very gently toss the salad with the dressing, using just a few turns of a plastic spoon or spatula, so the avocado doesn’t mush.
    4. Place in a serving bowl for family-style service, or portion onto 3-4 small plates for individual salads, and garnish with minced chives.
    5. Serves 3-4 as a side salad.Pixie Dust Salad with Avocados, Tangerines and Radishes | www.ShockinglyDelicious.com
