I loved this salad! My family liked it. The salad has a lot of flavor. I made it as a side dish to a quiche. My daughter thought the tastes of the two dishes were too strong, for they didn't compliment. I put two small cans of Mandarin oranges in the salad, which gave it a nice sweet touch. Thanks for the recipe!


This is absolutely delicious, and I now make it every week or two! The first time I brought it to work, people thought I had gotten it at a fancy deli. They kept saying, "Wow, it looks beautiful!" They were impressed with the fennel too; a few of them had never seen the bulb before. The flavor was wonderful. I also threw in some dried cranberries, which really added to the presentation. If you really wanted to be fancy, you could throw some toasted chopped pecans on there. Awesome recipe!


I found the fennel flavor to be a bit too overwhelming. My grocer had both large and small fennel bulbs. I used the larger and if I were to make this again I would use a smaller bulb or just use part of a larger bulb. However, the oranges do pair well with the fennel and tone that fennel flavor down. I also used baby spinach instead of arugala. I do not recommend this. Arugala has more flavor than baby spinach. However, this does make for a very pretty dish!
