Avocado Citrus Salad

Fri, 29th of January

This delicious salad is made using citrus fruits which are currently in season. Try whatever you like, from oranges to clementines or even blood oranges if you can get your hands on them. The creaminess of the avocado in this recipe works seamlessly with the cool, fresh fennel and the zing of the fruit. A perfect salad to put a pep in your step as we head out of winter and march towards spring.
