Fennel, Orange and Pomegranate Salad will come together in a couple of minutes. Enjoy these Winter seasonal vegetables in this refreshing salad.
One of our many New Years “Goals” this year, is to eat more vegetables and less meat. We going to try a little bit of the “Bill Clinton” diet – in other words more vegan, less processed and very little added fat. Hopefully that will help to combat some of my hubby’s heart disease. So in rolling out our Goal #2 – vegetables, I am sharing one of our favorite salads, Fennel, Orange & Pomegranate Salad. My hubby is a huge fan of this winter salad. It is all about fresh, in-season ingredients. Oranges from Florida are spectacular right now and the beauty of pomegranates are just an added benefit. Fennel is also thriving in the winter and will give you that savory, slightly anise flavor to balance out the sweet.
This recipe is so simple, I am a little embarrassed to call it a recipe. It literally will take you five minutes to make if you have a mandoline to shave the fennel. It will taste like a million bucks though! It is amazing what the acid from the oranges will do with the shaved fennel. Your family will think you are a rock star and only you need to know it is so easy. This is salad is fantastic for entertaining too. Your friends will oh and ah over the flavors and you will know it has 6 ingredients including salt and pepper. How is that for a winning recipe?
One little tip about the mandoline. They are easy to use but also very easy to cut yourself with. Use the guard. The guard really does have a purpose to save your little fingers. I know it can be a little cumbersome using it but it is better than a trip to the hospital for stitches. Even with having to be careful, a mandoline is the way to go with this dish. If you don’t have one, just slice the fennel as thin as you can. Next time you are out, pick up a cheap mandoline. Ok, on to the recipe!
