I love fennel combined with citrus, so refreshing :) Beautiful salad Angie, hope your week is going well!

I'm crazy about fennel, but have never cared for it raw. I love it roasted and in stews etc.

But the idea of serving it with citrus is calling me. Think I should give it another try!

Sharon @ Fun and Life 23/2/11 22:31

Fennel! I've never cooked with fennel. But I had it in soup once and loved it! This salad sounds so refreshing! The citrusyness (that's not a word is it?) must give it such a punch!

This looks like a very interesting twist on how to present fennel. Will definitely give it a try. Lovely Blog!

Anna Cioccio 28/2/11 15:20

Angie, I love serving fennel salad with an orange vinaigrette. It's the perfect side served with duck breast.

Terrianne, Call me Ree 1/3/11 00:25

This looks wonderfully fresh, light and tasty. And, one of the few things that has been able to appeal to me since being pregnant. Yummy! I've never had fennel. Not fresh, anyway. Just the seeds. But I'd really love a dish of this salad! =)

denise @ bread expectations 3/3/11 11:16

I love fennel - seed, powdered, bulb, and this is so beautiful!

tobias kocht! 15/3/11 19:04

I do this one a lot too. Love the combo of the orange and the fennel.

weirdcombos 17/3/11 17:46

This is favorite way of eating fennel shaved thin with citrus juices, oils, citrus wedges....
I call it my vegan ceviche.
I agree pinots are pricey. We haven't had much of French Burgundys. We will eventually :)
Thanks for stopping by weirdcombinations!
