A quick way to use fennel, this salad makes a great foil for fatty meat or seafood dishes. 

  • 1 bulb fennel, cut in half and with the core cut out
  • zest and juice of one orange
  • a couple tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 bulb shallot, minced
  • a splash of white wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. If you have a mandoline, use it to slice the fennel. If not, slice the bulb as thinly as you can, using a chef knife.
  2. In a small bowl, toss the fennel with the other ingredients. 
  3. Taste for seasoning. Does it need more acidity? How about salt? Adjust as needed.
