Orangetown Island Salad

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a 2020 life simulation video game for the Nintendo Switch. It is the fifth main series title in the Animal Crossing series. New Horizons was released in all regions on March 20, 2020.

In New Horizons, the player assumes the role of a customisable character who moves to a deserted island after purchasing a package from Tom Nook, a tanuki character who has appeared in every entry in the Animal Crossing series. Taking place in real-time, the player can explore the island in a nonlinear fashion, gathering and crafting items, catching insects and fish, and developing the island into a community of anthropomorphic animals.

Ingredients

3 Oranges
3 Carrots
70g Rocket
2 Avocados
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Dill (chopped)

Since the game came out in March 2020, I’ve been playing Animal Crossing New Horizons daily. I’ve always loved the Animal Crossing games, starting the franchise with Wild World, and then going on to play City Folk and New Leaf before New Horizons.

I’ve decided to make various salads for the Animal Crossing franchise, however I’ve started with an Orange salad as my Animal Crossing game has oranges as its main fruit, so Wilbur, a Dodo who flies planes to mystery islands, always refers to my island as Orangetown.

I love my Animal Crossing New Horizons game, and if anyone would like to visit my island, Luxrasia, please use my dream code: DA-0908-3999-6806
