With its creamy texture and mild, yet fragrant aroma, the avocado is perhaps my favorite aphrodisiac food. The provocative shape explains why some call it the testicle tree. It is a versatile fruit, excellent on its own, on sandwiches, even in smoothies. In this recipe, the avocado shares the stage with another arousing fruit, the orange in a mixed green salad with poppy seed dressing.
