Orange and Fennel Salad
- 3 tablespoons orange juice
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 cups arugula
- 1 medium fennel bulb, trimmed, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
- 3 large navel oranges, peeled and sliced into thin rounds
- 1 small red onion, peeled and thinly sliced
- 1/3 cup sliced almonds
- In a small bowl, whisk together orange juice and olive oil. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
- Divide arugula among 4 salad plates; set aside. Toss fennel with orange slices and red onions, then arrange on top of arugula. Drizzle reserved dressing over the top, garnish with almonds and serve.
Colorful and crunchy—the sweetness of the oranges is a tasty contrast to the sharp clean taste of the raw fennel. Save any juice that accumulates when you slice the oranges and use it when making the dressing, if you like.
