Fennel and orange salad

fennel and orange salad

I prepared this fennel and orange salad just by curiosity, I admit. For many years I did not eat fennel. Then, a couple of years ago, I discovered gratinated fennel and love it, as long as well done and very well colored.

The idea of matching fennel and orange pleased me as I do love the shrimp and orange salad. And it please me. Consodering I never eat fennel, I have repeated my portion.

This fennel and orange salad is a wonderful idea for a dinner or even holiday dinner. It is beautiful to see and can (and should) be prepared in advance.

  • 1 orange
  • black olives (pitted)
