Rocket, Fennel and Orange Salad

    15 minutes

    I grew up eating fennel and I've noticed its getting more common here. For all the fennel lovers like me, here is a delicious and good looking recipe combing it with rocket. For the non fennel lovers, you can easily substitute celery.

    Loved the recipe - looked good and easy to make. Would probably give the dressing a little more "bite" next time I make it.  -  09 May 2014


    Love this! I eliminated the olives and used dole canned mandarin oranges instead of the fresh ones. I also added some balsamic vinegar and a little juice from the canned oranges to the dressing... it was delicious.  -  03 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I also grew up eating this type of salad, minus the arugula. I will try it with the elegant addition I'm sure. Try adding chili flakes and squeeze an orange into the dressing as well. This reminds me of Sicily.  -  03 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
