Love this! I eliminated the olives and used dole canned mandarin oranges instead of the fresh ones. I also added some balsamic vinegar and a little juice from the canned oranges to the dressing... it was delicious.
I also grew up eating this type of salad minus the arugula. I will try it with the arugula.....an elegant addition I'm sure. Try adding chili flakes and squeeze an orange into the dressing as well. This reminds me of Sicily.
What a delicious salad. Thanks for sharing! I have used fennel in a creamy potato soup recipe that I have and we love that one so decided to branch out with another fennel recipe. I made this salad last night when we had friends over. We paired the salad with To Die For Fettuccine Alfredo (also on this site) and they worked perfectly together - one rich and very creamy the other crunchy and sharp-sweet. I doubled the dressing recipe just to be sure I'd have enough. (I can always use up leftover dressing on other salads/steamed veggies.) I probably ended up adding a bit more lemon juice than the recipe calls for - just a matter of personal taste. I was worried the honey sweetness would be too much but not at all: it really works with the stronger arugula and fennel flavors. I used seedless clementine wedges instead of oranges just b/c that's what we had at the house. All-in-all a 5-star recipe. Tastes great looks so bright and colorful and it's an ideal way to break away from boring lettuce salads!
I would have used canned mandarin oranges. The Navel oranges I used were not the flavor I wanted and I could not make the dressing work but I used unfair trade olive oil so... Advisory: when cutting a fennel bulb remove a wedge-shaped section of the core. If you don't the result is an octopus "head" and "tentacles" protruding from it.
I decided I had to make a salad with fennel for some friends. I don't know; I just felt like using fennel. I found this recipe. I had never used fennel before nor arugula....and black olives with oranges? Well it works! The salad was delicious everybody loved it and I had no leftovers! Suggestioin: cut the fennel bulb into small-to-medium pieces.
I prepared this dish for the 4th of July. I used my garden grown arugula which made it extra special. I also substituted canned manderin oranges for fresh and added balsamic to the dressing. A great dressing to the best tasting greens ever.
