To me, thinly slicing the fennel is important. I find that fennel can be a bit of a strong flavor, but sliced very thinly it mixes in nicely with the other salad ingredients.
This fantastic fresh fennel salad recipe is combines the fennel with sweet oranges, red onion, black olives and cooling mint.
The acid in the oranges cuts the fennel flavor just enough. The red onion adds both color and a bit of kick. The olives add that briny flavor and of course mint adds a touch of coolness.
Together it is a wonderful mix with the addition of olive oil and salt and pepper to season it.
I would use your best olive oil here. A nice extra virgin olive oil adds another layer of fantastic flavor to this healthy salad.
This recipe is actually extremely healthy. Every ingredient in it has fantastic health benefits.
