For those of you that follow me, you’ve heard me say before that I don’t eat salad regularly because I just don’t enjoy it that much. However, I went the store to get veggies a couple days ago and saw a bulb of fennel that I just had to have. Shortly after that, I saw they had blood oranges in stock, which doesn’t happen that often! They are the PERFECT pair. Blood orange is a dark reddish color and the flavor is like a cross between a grapefruit and an orange. I threw together a salad with the two ingredients and could not get enough. It’s a shame to call this a recipe, but it is really just simple ingredients, but it was worth a formal publish!!
Blood Orange and Fennel Salad
1 blood orange, peeled and sliced
thinly sliced fennel
a few pinches of feta (organic, unpasteurized)
drizzle basil infused EVOO (regular would work too)
drizzle barrel aged balsamic (regular would work too)
protein of choice
Throw it all in a bowl and eat!!!
