Fennel And Orange Salad
Ingredients
2
2
medium blood oranges
 
Orange juice (optional)
1/4
cup olive oil
2
tablespoons balsamic vinegar
 
Butterhead (Bibb or Boston) lettuce leaves
 
Snipped fresh chives
Directions
  1. Cut off and discard upper stalks of fennel bulbs; if desired, reserve some of the feathery leaves. Cut off a thin slice from base of fennel bulbs. Remove and discard any wilted outer layers. Wash fennel and cut each bulb into 1/4-inch slices, discarding core. Set aside.
  2. Peel and section blood oranges over a large bowl to catch the juice. For dressing, in the same bowl, whisk together the reserved orange juice,* the olive oil, and vinegar.
  3. Line four salad plates with lettuce leaves. Arrange the fennel slices and orange sections on lettuce; sprinkle with chives. Drizzle dressing over salads. If desired, garnish salads with reserved fennel leaves. Makes 4 side-dish servings.
From the Test Kitchen

*You need 1/2 cup orange juice for the dressing. If you don't get enough from the blood oranges, add enough orange juice to measure 1/2 cup.
