Orange and Fennel Salad

This classic flavour combination makes a wonderful spring salad

Preparation: 5 mins

Serves: 4

1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar

2 tablespoons olive oil

Coarse salt and ground pepper

5 navel oranges

3 fennel bulbs  ends trimmed, quartered lengthwise, cored, and thinly sliced,

1/4 cup roughly chopped fennel fronds (optional

3 radishes, ends trimmed, finely sliced


In a large bowl, whisk together vinegar and oil; season with salt and pepper. Using a sharp knife, slice off both ends of each orange. Following the curve of the fruit, cut away the peel and white pith. Halve orange from top to bottom; thinly slice crosswise.

Transfer oranges, along with any juices that have accumulated on work surface, to bowl with dressing. Add fennel and, if desired, fronds.
