Orange Fennel Salad

Orange Fennel Salad
This is one of those salads that make you feel like you should eat a salad more often. You know that appreciation of the variety of tastes and textures and no heaviness after the meal, and of the fact that you just made your body very happy. I love fruity salads but the sweetness always needs to be carefully balanced. I think fennel bulb (or root) does a fantastic job at that and it goes so well with the orange taste. The roasted hazelnuts also need to be acknowledged because they are just the perfect nuts. Here is the recipe:

  1. Hey Maya, thank you soooo much for this recipe. The first time I made it when my parents came visiting – with walnut-herbs-bread fresh from the oven. Yummie!!! Since then I enyoy the downsized version (without greens and walnut and cranberries) at least once a week. So thanks again – I really love this salad đŸ™‚
