Brandy Dipped Citrus Salad

With just a hint of brandy, this citrus salad from Alisha Randell is all grown up.
By Alisha Randell

The pairing of snappy fennel and creamy avocado add a wonderful array of textures as well as flavors.

A note about the flavors:

The fennel has a quaint licorice sent and flavor similar to what you would akin to anise.

The Kumquats are quite small and have a sharp tangy citrus flavor, quite tart in fact.

The Clementines are tangy like a Tangerine but a bit sweeter, depending on season of course.

The Blood Orange has a deeper flavor and somewhat reminiscent of a berry.

They are all a lovely combination but whatever you have available works…
