Fennel & Blood Orange Salad #FennelFriday

Fennel and Blood Orange Salad for Fennel Friday from The Hungry Goddess
Fennel Friday is HERE
and we have been playing with fennel fruit this week.  Pairing citrus and just about any fruit is a no-brainer – they mesh wonderfully!

Putting raw fennel in a salad is crunchy, aromatic, tasty and good for you – so what are you waiting for?  Start creating some salads for lunch, dinner and in between!  The other night, I simply sliced some fennel thin and drizzled EVOO and added sea salt and cracked pepper – perfect as a side for any meal.  Add some blood oranges or other fruit and you elevate the flavor.

The Fennel and Blood Orange Salad is soooo tasty – you can rearrange the ingredients, do it with or without onion, and sprinkle a little quinoa on it for texture.  I added some Pea Greens for color and that yummy green flavor – be creative!  Fennel Pollen adds a delicious finishing touch as well!
