Fennel And Orange Salad
"This fennel and orange salad is a great seasonal winter salad. It's Italian, typical of Sicily and it’s super simple to make, ready in minutes and full of flavour! This salad is super refreshing and the perfect winter side dish or appetizer. It is easy and quick to make and its an inexpensive and seasonal salad recipe.The fennel is crunchy and it adds a nice licorice flavour and the orange is juicy, sweet and tangy. It is served with a simple dressing made of olive oil, the juice of the orange, salt and pepper. This is a traditional Italian recipe. The olives addition is a version of the traditional recipe which only includes fennel and orange. Other substitutions include raw red onion and pine nuts."
