I am so ashamed to say I've never used fennel. This salad is so completely gorgeous! I've said it before, but you are a food artist. The photos are incredible. Fresh is best :)

Look at all those beautiful strawberries! We are so close to strawberry picking season out here; I can't wait!

Elisabeth 12/6/12 18:36

OMG-Angie, I'm blown away...well, I must say this is one of my most favorite love, fennel, and oh, my! carrots, and strawberries...the photos, the presentation, the recipe! Whewww! exhausted with just gazing at all these, my eyes are vibrating from the gorgeous colors.

p.s. with all my technical knowledge, I did upload the "pin" it button, but I must find a way to upload my file w/photos from the pin it button like some bloggers have it! Will check yours out to see how it works!

MaryMoh 12/6/12 19:36

That's such a colourful and healthy it!

The Squishy Monster 12/6/12 20:49

How light and refreshing, it looks great, Angie! I used to hate fennel, but now I love it ;)

Carolyn 12/6/12 21:10

Mmmm, I have carrots and strawberries, now all I need is fennel!

Pacheco Patty 12/6/12 21:41

I love your carrot fennel strawberry salad and am thrilled to have inspired you in your kitchen! Thanks for the mention and I will pin this one right now;-)

Tina Bk 12/6/12 22:31

Very creative and healthy blend here. In fact if it were on the menu at a restaurant I would surely order it-yum! Also, I envy you getting such tiny strawberries because they are more sweet than the larger ones. The ones around here are getting to be as big as plums and not much flavor.

Fimère 12/6/12 22:43

il y a tout ce que j'aime dans cette salade elle est fantastique j'aime beaucoup
bonne soirée

Tanantha 12/6/12 22:52

Sounds refreshing! and I have no doubt this recipe is good since it's from Patty :D

Angela 12/6/12 23:51

This is a combo I never would have thought of. I am very intrigued!

Claudia 13/6/12 01:18

I never would have thought of combining fennel with strawberries! How spring-summery it all looks - and love how you dress it - and present it.

If you don’t mind, could you post this carrot fennel and strawberry salad photos on a food photography website called to make others live in a healthier way? :)
Thank you.

petite nyonya 13/6/12 09:43

this is such a refreshing looking salad. i've never tried fennel before but i know it has a liquorice taste. interesting combination with strawberries!

Aldy @ Al Dente Gourmet 13/6/12 12:15

Ohhh, That salad looks lovely, Angie. So refreshing and healthy too :) Beautiful combination of flavors! Have a great day :)

sophiesfoodiefiles 13/6/12 13:38

Raspberry vinegar goes so well with strawberries & veggies, I agree! :) What a lovely lunch with some crusty bread on the side!
MMMMMMMMMMMM,...A georgous creation, dear Angie! :)

Sandra Lee 13/6/12 14:07

Healthy, beautiful and delicious all rolled into one!

Faith 13/6/12 14:09

This salad looks like the perfect way to use up the gorgeous fresh strawberries I have on hand -- I love strawberry season! :)

kitcheninspirations 13/6/12 14:47

This recipe sounds similar to one that I've made many, many times, but mine has over 19 ingredients so it makes it rather laborious. I recall seeing the argan oil when we were in Morocco but sadly I only bought the cosmetic version (very good for dry skin). I will have to try this salad as I adore fennel and combined with the strawberry it sounds divine!

Gloria 13/6/12 18:35

Angie love this salad!

Eliotseats 13/6/12 19:47

Beautiful salad and presentation.

Cucina49 13/6/12 21:25

Mmm, this looks delicious! I have fennel coming in my farm box, and argan oil that I never know what to do with--this is a winner.

CJ - Food Stories 13/6/12 21:49

This looks so delicious and so simple :-)

Pam 13/6/12 22:00

Guru Uru 13/6/12 22:34

This is the perfect mixed salad my friend, looks utterly delicious :D


Heather 14/6/12 00:00

Gorgeous salad, Angie...I love all of the whispy vegetable cuts. And that raspberry vinegar in the dressing. Perfect!

Elin 14/6/12 04:44

The salad is colorful and I am sure it is delicious with the fennel,mint leaves, strawberries...gosh I can imagine the taste of it all with the argan oil vinaigrette :) Lovely spring salad !

Dear Angie, Great salad! Colorful, flavorful and healthy. Blessings dearest. Catherine xo

mjskit 14/6/12 16:21

Love this fresh and tasty salad!!! I've never heard of Argan oil and I don't think I've even seen it, but I will be looking for it now because I love mixing up oils and vinegars in my salad dressings. Thanks for turning me on to a new ingredient!

Cheap Ethnic Eatz 14/6/12 18:43

Great salad! I love fennel, especially raw like this. And I see it beautifully paired with the strawberries. OK curious about the Argan oil in a vinaigrette. Only have seen it for beauty product (and $$$).

Jenn Kendall 14/6/12 20:19

this sounds so delicious! yum!

Bams Kitchen 15/6/12 02:30

Dear Angie, I am so glad that you stop by my website so that I could find yours. I love this light strawberry salad. Are you living in HK now as I noticed your blog name? Take care, BAM

kankana 15/6/12 06:39

Such a quick and lovely salad. Perfect for the season! :)

Jean | 15/6/12 14:45

What a lovely combination! And I like that the salad is so lightly dressed. Wouldn't want to overwhelm those refreshing ingredients with a heavy dressing or too much dressing.

Karen (Back Road Journal) 15/6/12 14:59

What a colorful and delicious sounding salad. I like the licorice flavor of the fennel combined with the strawberries.

Mary 15/6/12 15:17

What a perfect summer salad! This sounds amazing and has wonderful color. Yum! Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Cathleen 15/6/12 16:34

This looks incredibly refreshing! I have only tried strawberries in salad once, I should experiment more!

Angie's Recipes 15/6/12 18:52

@Bams Kitchen Thanks, Bam, for stopping by too. I guess that you live in HK, that's why my blog name appeared to you as .hk.

Geni 15/6/12 19:31

Angie, I am always on the look out for a new salad recipe. This one is so unique and summery. Love it!

Amy (Savory Moments) 16/6/12 02:11

I've never thought of putting fennel and strawberries together before. I bet it's really good though. I love raw fennel and should eat it more often. Your salad looks really pretty and fresh, too.

SavoringTime in the Kitchen 16/6/12 17:14

Fresh fennel is salad is delicious and I really like the play of sweet and savory in this salad.

Sandi G 20/6/12 16:16

Now that's how a salad is done :)

Amanda 29/6/12 18:36

such pretty colors! :D also, i am having trouble viewing your latest post. maybe this is just my problem...

Patty 1/7/12 17:23

This needs to be in my belly asap! So tasty!

glutwin 7/12/12 11:24

Stunning salade...a "must" this Noël on our table..What would you think of using pomegranite arils or fresh lingonberries...groseilles for the red "pop" of colour?

Not sure about this particular quote from Alton Brown...a tad trop "sexist" in my opinion...although I admire his culinary acumen!..

I LIKE that you always give us something to think about via your finishing quotes as well as something to create in the kitchen...Nourishing the body and nourishing the soul!..Good on you!
