This wonderful, fresh, summery dish, is very easy to make. I'm relatively new to fennel, but this recipe definitely highlights the wonderful, licorice-y flavor and complements it well with the citrus. This would be a great choice to accompany a fish or chicken dish.

I followed the recipe exactly except not sure about size of arugula since I don't have a way to measure. My husband and I agreed that is was nice to have something different but there are other salads we like better. Unusual but not over the top great. Read More

I was happy to find this recipe having fresh spinach fennel and oranges sitting on the counter waiting to be used. I substituted pine nuts for the almonds other than that I followed the recipe. I love it as written. The cumin in the salad dressing is a nice touch. Read More

This salad was delicious--light but satisfying. I served it with chicken kabobs. (About fennel try it! I hadn't till recently because I'm not a black licorice fan but it was so good in this!) Read More
