Don’t fear the fennel. Its strong, aromatic presence is subdued by the bite of the citrus and the creamy avocado. As unlikely a match as these ingredients may seem, it all just works. Eat first, ask questions later. Be sure to wash the fennel thoroughly after chopping it. Dirt has a tendency to weasel its way deep into the layers.
