Orange and Fennel Salad
Crisp refreshing and attractive, this salad has it all. You can serve it as a first course, a side dish, or on a buffet. It is especially useful during the winter months when oranges are at their peak, but tomatoes and other vegetables are not at their best, and it is an excellent the grilled fish. Because oranges can vary in sweetness, adjust the acidity with a little vinegar, if you wish. I like to use a plastic V-slicer or a mandoline to thinly slice the fennel, but use a knife if you prefer. Just be sure the fennel is very thin.
