Recipe: Fennel and Blood Orange Salad

Summary: A crisp refreshing summer salad


  1. 2 blood oranges 1 bulb fennel ½ cup pitted kalamata olives 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar kosher salt freshly ground black pepper


  1. Peel the blood oranges and remove all the white pith. With a paring knife, remove orange segments, strip them of their individual membranous coverings and place them in a bowl.

Make a dressing by mixing the olive oil and red wine vinegar, and seasoning to taste. Toss all the ingredients together and serve in a bowl.
