Citrus & fennel avocado salad is a delicious simple side dish to serve this summer. It’s fresh & flavorful, and comes together in under 20 minutes.
Citrus & Fennel Avocado Salad
I’ve been on an avocado kick lately and since my avocado chickpea salad went viral a few weeks ago, I thought it was time to create a newer citrus avocado salad that’s perfect for summer.
This simple side dish is made with thick avocado slices, shaved fennel, blood oranges, crunchy nuts & seeds and feta cheese. I love it alone or served over marinated arugula.
I love pairing this avocado salad with baked salmon for a nourishing meal. It’ll stay fresh in the fridge for up to 3 days so can be enjoyed throughout the week.
How to make citrus avocado salad
The key is to use avocados that are still somewhat firm, so that they hold their shape in the salad.
Things you’ll need for this avocado salad:
- Semi-firm avocados
- Shaved fennel- you can use a mandoline, vegetable slicer, or sharp knife to thinly shave the fennel
- Blood oranges
- Feta cheese
- Fresh mint
- Roasted pistachios and pumpkin seeds
- Olive oil
- Lemon juice
- Salt & pepper
The sweet, salty and savory flavors in this salad work so well together. It’s delicious on its own as a light lunch, but perfect as a side dish for a crowd. I can’t wait for you guys to try it!
