Yesterday, Tammy over at Boston Food & Whine was reviewing her Boston Organics Order and said, "I am most excited about the fennel. I have definitely been craving a shaved fennel salad... perhaps with a little celery. We'll see..."
Naturally, that made ME crave a shaved fennel salad. Here is what Tammy inspired for my supper!
I laid down a bed of mixed greens, shaved a fennel bulb into a separate bowl, cut an orange into segments over the fennel so that all the extra juice could become part of the dressing.
I snipped a few of the fennel fronds into the mix for color, ground in some black pepper sprinkled with sea salt and mixed it up.
A taste told me the orange needed help to make a good dressing, so I added a dash of seasoned rice vinegar and then drizzled in some extra virgin olive oil. Tossed it again and placed it over the greens.
Finally, I pitted and halved a few Moroccan dried olives and placed them around the salad. It was very good.
Thank you, Tammy!
