Happy Memorial Day. With that said, summer has crept upon us. Hot weather, sun, grilling and fresh food.
One of my favorite foods is fennel. I love the crisp, black licorice taste of it. It’s a great addition to any dish. Salads are always a good side to any grilled meal. The black licorice taste of fennel and citrusy orange compliment each other perfectly. This is a recipe that would accompany grilled fish or chicken perfectly.
- Dijon Mustard
- Almonds (Optional)
- Cut the fennel into two pieces. Place on the grill for a short time until grill marks appear. Zest one orange and then cut the orange into segments. Zest one lime and squeeze the juice into a bowl. Add the dijon mustard to the orange and lime zest and lime juice. While whisking together add olive oil to make a dressing. Combine the fennel, orange segments and almonds together. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss together. Add salt and pepper.
