  1. Fill a medium-sized bowl with ice and water, and soak the onions for 10 to 20 minutes. This step makes the onions crisp and softens their flavor intensity.
  2. Meanwhile, on a large serving plate, layer the orange and avocado slices.
  3. Drain the onion well and tuck pieces in between and on top of the orange and avocado. Drizzle the salad with the lime juice and sprinkle generously with salt.
  4. Sprinkle the seeds and cilantro on top, then drizzle the olive oil all over it. Serve promptly.
