Avocados, tart-sweet citrus segments, and thinly sliced fennel come together on this light and refreshing open-faced sandwich. Oranges are featured in this recipe, but grapefruit, tangerines, clementines, or pomelos would be excellent alternatives. Mint adds a light, herbal finish, but arugula and feta cheese would make a punchier, bolder substitute if you're so inclined.
