Orange Fennel Salad

A wonderful, fresh, summery dish, and very easy to make. I’m relatively new to fennel, but this recipe definitely highlights the wonderful, licorice-y flavor and compliments it well with the citrus. This would be a great choice to accompany a fish or chicken dish.

 

1 bag baby spinach

2 navel oranges, sectioned (use a bowl to catch the juice)

½ fennel bulb, sliced thinly (if you have fronds from the fennel, chop a teaspoonful)

¼ c sliced roasted almonds or walnuts

1 T chopped mint

 

3 T olive oil

The juice from sectioning the oranges, plus a little orange juice if needed

½ t cumin

1/2t onion powder

Salt and pepper to taste

 

Whisk together the olive oil, orange juice, cumin, onion powder, and season.

 

Mix together salad ingredients, toss with dressing, and serve.

 

**optional add-ins: red onion, red bell pepper
