Fennel, Beet, Spring Onion & Orange Salad


Just a light refreshing and low cal, healthy salad for a quick laboral lunch ...

1 large fennel bulb
2/3 cup Evoo
1 ripe however lightly firm avocado
2 triple skin oranges ( with fragrance or do not buy )
1 small red onion
1 spring onion
a handful of fresh basil leaves
a drizzle of lemon or lime
A Lettuce of choice

Wash and slice all of the veggies
I plate as follows: the arugula and radicchio
Then the fennel, then the onion sliced finely and the oranges, a drizzle of lemon or lime, sliced avocado and a drizzle of Evoo and toss and now, a drizzle of Modena Balsamic and toss again

One can add other ingredients to their liking.

Kind regards.

Buongiorno Tax Lady,

Triple skin oranges are those stunner fragrant Mediterranean, designation of origin, Israeli very thick skinned large oranges. I do not know what they are called in Canada or the USA.

Thanks for your enquiry.
