Description

This refreshing Citrus Fennel Avocado Salad with a citrus champagne vinaigrette is like sunshine on a plate! 


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups thinly sliced fennel (marinated in dressing, below)
  • 2 mandarin oranges (or tangerines)
  • 1 small grapefruit
  • 1 blood orange
  • 1 navel orange
  • 46 kumquats
  • 1 small avocado, diced
  • 1 1/2 tbsp fresh mint 
  • Fennel fronds for garnish 

Dressing: 

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice 
  • 3 tbsp orange juice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tbsp champagne vinegar
  • 1 tbsp shallots, minced
  • 1 tbsp mint
  • 2 tsp agave 
  • 1/2 tsp salt 
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper

Instructions

  1. To make dressing, whisk all ingredients together to emulsify. Alternatively, add all ingredients to a glass jar, seal with lid and shake well. 
  2. Slice fennel thinly and marinate in bowl of dressing for about 30 minutes. 
  3. Prepare citrus and avocado, then plate with fennel and drizzle remaining dressing over top. Garnish with fresh mint and fennel fronds. Enjoy!

Notes

To prepare fennel, trim the stalks, slice bulb in half lengthwise, and slice crosswise. The fronds (the tiny leaves that look like dill) are totally edible and can be included in the salad.
