Fennel is an amazing licorice-flavored, crisp and crunchy celery. I love to add chilled, raw fennel to salads! Not only does it taste oh so licorice-good, it’s loaded with Vitamin C and Potassium!
Fennel and Peppery Strawberry Salad is a positively lovely summer salad. It’s refreshingly delish and, when plated with panache, it is a feast for the eyes!
Ingredients for Salad (followed by ingredients for dressing!)
2 medium Fennel Bulbs, finely sliced
2 small bunches Watercress, cut off stems, just use the leaves (unless you disagree; seriously, it’s your salad)
1 pelled and segmented naval orange (no pits please!)
1 cup of strawberries, hulled (basically you want to remove the stem with its little green leaves, without cutting away at the strawberry! I am a skilled huller!)
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste!
Juice from one fresh Lemon
Juice from one fresh Orange
1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Whisk together the juices and olive oil in a medium-sized bowl.
Marinade the fennel slices in the dressing for 15 minutes, more or less.
Toss the fennel, dressing with the watercress and orange slices.
On separate plate, gently pepper the strawberries, to taste. A little on this side; then roll to the other side.
Artfully and strategically place strawberries around, on top of salad.
Take a photo! Seriously!!! Document this amazingly delish and beautiful salad.
