Fresh and Fruity, just how I like my salads among other things! This is delicious eaten with the sun shining and a glass of something chilled in one hand.
I make a winter version with walnuts and pomegranate seeds too. But there is just something so delicious about the combination of orange and fennel with the crunch of a nut and the freshness of herbs.
It would make for a delicate light starter or a compliment to other salads or grilled vegetables.
The size her will serve 4 as a light starter but is very simple to double up for feeding a crowd. The dressing will make plenty for the portion size and some left over to use in the week on salads.
