Orange, Olive and Fennel Salad with Cranberry Vinaigrette

Want to pair a glass of wine with this salad? According to Chef John Ash, the creator of this recipe, a bright, fruity Gamay, Gewürztraminer, or White Zinfandel would all work with this refreshing salad.

Times

  • Ready Time : 0 min

Servings

6 servings of salad, 1 ¼ cups vinaigrette

Ingredients

    For the Vinaigrette

    • 1 cup fresh or frozen, thawed cranberries
    • ½ cup fresh orange juice
    • 1 tablespoon finely chopped shallot or green onion, white part only
    • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lime or lemon juice
    • 1/3 to ½ cup canola or neutral olive oil
    • kosher or sea salt
    • freshly ground pepper

    For the Salad:

    • 3 large navel oranges, peeled and sliced 1/4 –inch thick
    • 1 large head fennel, sliced paper thin vertically
    • 1 small sweet red onion, peeled and thinly sliced in rings (soak in ice water if the flavor is too strong)

    Directions

    3. Garnish with the fennel sprigs (the top leafy part of the bulb).
