Print Blood orange and fennel salad

Orange and fennel are a good combination, and blood oranges have a particularly delicious flavour.

Try tossing with some watercress and toasted hazelnuts, or some pitted black olives. You could also use some wine vinegar in the dressing, or any juice you collect as you prepare the oranges. This salad is good on its own as a starter or as a side with fish. If your fennel came with any foliage you can garnish with some chopped leaves.
