½ ripe mango, peeled and cut into long slices

1 ripe kiwi, peeled and chopped

1 tbsp of gorgonzola cheese, crumbled

For the orange vinaigrette

1 tbsp of white wine vinegar

2 tbsp of orange juice

1 tbsp of lime juice

1 tsp of olive oil

½ tsp of cumin, ground

¼ tsp of chili flakes

Salt and pepper to taste

**Directions: Combine everything together; mix well. Set aside.

For the pickled onion (optional)

½ red onion, finely sliced

1 tbsp of lime juice

2 tbsp of sugar

1 tsp of kosher salt

Just enough vinegar to submerge the red onion

**Directions: Combine everything together in a shallow dish. Let it rest for few hours or until the red onions become soft and absorb the flavor. Can be made a day before. Store in a mason jar and keep in the refrigerator.
