Orange fennel salad recipe

This orange fennel salad recipe is simple, quick, and packs a lot of flavors. We use simple seasonal ingredients you can find anywhere:

  • Fennel: Use a whole fennel bulb that you trim off the greens. Remove the outer ribs if they are damaged or have brown spots.
  • Orange: Navel orange works great but you can also use blood oranges. Check below on how to cut out orange supreme for the salad.
  • Orange juice: Use freshly squeezed orange juice for best results.
  • Lemon juice: This adds a tangy note to the vinaigrette dressing.
  • Olive oil: Use good quality olive oil. Look for cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil.
  • Dill weed: They make the magic of the orange fennel salad dressing. If you cannot find dill, use the greens from the fennel bulb.
  • Salt and pepper: To make all these wonderful flavors pop out!

Tips for the orange fennel salad recipe

  • Feel free to add more ingredients like grapefruit, shallot, pomegranate seeds, etc…
  • You can add more greens to make the salad more substantial, arugula is a great option.

How to cut an orange into supremes

Keeping the white pith and membrane from the orange is a no-no in salads. Here’s the method to cut orange supremes:

  • Slice off the ends of the orange Make sure you’ve cut through all of the pith and that you can see some of the orange flesh.
  • Cut off the peel following the orange curve, it’s okay to cut through a little of the orange flesh.
  • Cut away an orange segment within the white membrane lines. Two angled cuts and the orange segment will pop right out. Proceed with the rest of the orange.

How to keep orange fennel salad leftovers

This orange fennel salad is best when eaten right on the spot, but if you have leftovers, keep them in an airtight container in your refrigerator for up to 2 days. After that, you’ll lose the crunch this orange fennel salad is all about!
