Salad Days - Fennel and Orange

A week of salads already! I didn't have much time on Friday as I'd been dashing around and, in this warm weather, only needed a light salad.  So, since we were going all Italian on Thursday, I thought I would continue the theme with the classic Tuscan salad of (bulb) fennel and orange.  I love the aniseed flavour of fennel and the addition of orange makes a crisp, juicy, bright, sparkly salad to wake up and refresh the taste buds! In the end, I didn't get time to eat my light salad until it was nearly dark, so this pic is from one I made the following day ...

... when I discovered that I was the only one at the table who liked fennel. So Sunday brunch will feature this salad as well!
