Fennel has a licorice-like flavor which seems like an odd pairing with oranges, but it’s basically like tiger ice cream. Except in salad form, and without all the sugar and dairy. Okay, so very little like tiger ice cream. Regardless, it’s a great pairing and absolutely delicious.

Gordie (almost 4): Tried 2 pieces of fennel and 2 pieces of oranges. Ate tons and tons of oranges while we made the salad.
Nicky (12 months): loved the oranges (and also ate a ton while we were making it) but had trouble chewing the fennel
Stephen: Weird but tasty.
Anne: Interesting combination that goes together really well.
Bronwen: The fennel is really good. Thirst quenching.
Dana: This salad is easy to put together and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients. One of the things I really liked about it, is how fresh it is for a winter salad.
