Fennel and Orange Salad
After all the rich holiday foods, it’s detox time for many of you out there (and me) and this recipe fits the bill perfectly. It’s a salad I make each Christmas eve to accompany the bounty of fish dishes we prepare that night. But there’s no reason you can’t enjoy this as a side dish any night of the year. There’s hardly a recipe per se. Just slice fresh fennel very thinly (I used a mandoline), spread it out on a platter and arrange orange slices and dried cranberries on top. Sprinkle with coarse salt, olive oil and white balsamic vinegar. Finito!

Love this dish. Colorful, healthy and light. Terrific!
Let's talk the night before so we can coordinate our exact menus!!!
GMTA…I am making this tonight but with olives..
Yours looks beautiful and refreshing…I may even take out my new Mandoline…hopefully I will not slice anything off this time!:X
I love the little cranberry touch. So healthy and refreshing this salad is. I'll be picking up some fennel this weekend, thanks to you and Stacey. Love your platter!
Linda, I agree, it is the perfect salad after all of the calorie and fat laden foods of the holidays.
Your version looks particularly pretty, and that platter! Oh my gosh that is so beautiful.
I love fennel and oranges. This looks beautiful.
You always make this look so pretty– so artful! This looks fabulous. Looks like you and Stace were on the same wavelength.
Gee, I've made fennel and orange salad and it never looked like this! This is just stunning. I need presentation lessons! I will make the salad this weekend – you have inspired me.
Wow che ricettina e che presentazione, ideale per disintossicarsi dagli eccessi delle feste.Buon week-end Daniela.
I am a big fan of fennel! this looks great Linda… we have some dinner guests tonight, so this would be perfect (especially since one is a Vegetarian!)
Wow, that looks so pretty and delicious too!
One of my fave winter salads & your family style presentation is an eye-catcher.
Hmm this I want to make. I wonder what all the flavors together would be like mingling around my tastebuds.
I hope my store has fennel!
I love fennel in any way, shape or form and especially in a fennel and orange salad! We ate some on Christmas eve too!
I've never had it with the dried fruit or white balsamic before so I'm anxious to give this one a try.
I'm really craving oranges these days, and this looks like the perfect pairing. Oranges and fennel. YUM.
I love fennel. It looks delicious combined with the oranges and cranberries. Simple and elegant!
I adore this salad, and your idea to add cranberries. Brava! I also like julienned fennel and carrots, dressed with lemon/olive oil. 🙂
This sounds refreshing and delicious!
Your photo is so enticing: my palate is thinking: fresh, crisp and clean which is just what is needed at this time of year.
Happy New Year, Linda. Tante belle cose!
Very refreshing! We love finocchio!
Really nice. Love the balance of color and texture.
Also love your platter!!
I have fennel oranges, dried cranberries. Guess what I'm making tomorrow………………
I just love fennel and orange together – my favourite salad pairing.
