Orange Avocado & Fennel Salad

Orange avocado & fennel salad is a dish celebrating seasonal veggies and fruits. Fennel has unique aromatic flavour similar to liquorice. I love the colours and shapes of the ingredients.  Note, the secret of this salad is that all the veggies has to be sliced very thin. Also, I think that next time I will add some pistachios to give earthiness to this amazing salad. Don’t be afraid to experiment and go with your instincts!
