Fennel Salad with oranges, dried cranberries and Red Wine Vinaigrette

All I could think of while eating this salad was how sweet and summery it tasted.

  • 1 fennel bulb, fronds removed and chopped (will look like chopped cabbage)
  • 1 orange, sliced and cut into squares
  • 2 handful dried whole cranberries

Red Wine Vinaigrette Dressing

  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground garlic
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain Dijon mustard

In a small mixing bowl, mix all the dressing ingredients. Optional: Pour the vinaigrette mixture into a small glass flask with a leak-proof top and shake well. Use the flask to serve.

In a salad bowl put in the fennel first. Drizzle vinaigrette over fennel. I like to slow pour a letter “G” onto the salad. Mix well. Then top with sliced oranges and dried cranberries.
