  • 1 medium fennel bulb (use stocks and fronds for garnish)
  • 2 oranges ( I used 1 blood orange and 1 cava cava)
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/4 red onion (sliced)
  • 1/4 cup toasted pistachio nuts (chopped)
  • 1 tsp. good quality honey
  • olive oil
  • salt + pepper
  • parsley (for garnish)


1. Using a pairing knife cut half inch of the top and bottom of the orange. Stand the orange up on your cutting board and carefully cut the skin and pith off following the curve of the orange. Then make 1/4 inch slices and set aside

2. Cut 1/4 inch slices of the fennel bulb and onion and set aside

3. Cut avocado in half, remove the pit and carefully remove the avocado from its skin, slice each half and set aside

4. Using a large platter, start to layer your ingredients

5. Drizzle with olive oil, honey and season with salt and pepper

6. Garnish your salad with fresh parsley, fennel fronds and sliced stocks and pistachio nuts

From the Chef:

Fennel has a strong anise-like-flavor when eaten raw. When you roast or grill fennel the flavor becomes much more mild and sweet!

From the Doc:

Pistachios are great to add to salads or breakfast yogurt or chia bowls to get added fiber, protein, and an abundance of vitamins and minerals.
