January 23, 2017Fennel Salad Recipe With Rocket & Blood Oranges

fennel orange & rocket salad

Serves 4-6

This is a very simple but refreshing tasting salad. It can be made throughout the year and a particularly good recipe for the winter months when salads are sparse. It also works really well if served with oily rich foods. So I often serve it during the festive season. It’s great to use with left over meats for a buffet and also good when we have to buy salad ingredients way in advance. You can omit the rocket and just use the fennel and oranges, as they will last for several days in the fridge.

The trick with this salad is to make sure the fennel is as finely chopped as possible. Blood oranges when in season make a great colour contrast, but ordinary ones work just as well, or use pomegranate seeds, to give some extra colour to the salad.
