Avocado Fennel Citrus Salad
Celebrate winter with Chilean Hass Avocados and fresh citrus. Grapefruit, oranges and limes or lemons are perfect complements to the rich taste and texture of avocado. All of them are a perfect match with crisp slices of fennel. Together they're an unbeatable flavor team. And there’s no reason for a calorie-laden dressing – use the fruit juices with just a little honey. The avocados provide the satisfaction, and important monounsaturated fats. This easy salad travels well, so pack it up for a pot luck, tailgate or big game event.
