This tangy fennel salad comes alive with the addition of orange. It’s delicious served alongside a rich roast.
2 oranges (Garden Organics, Stalls 74-75)
1 fennel bulb (Garden Organics, Stalls 74-75)
½ red (Spanish) onion (Garden Organics, Stalls 74-75)

Peel the oranges and cut into thin slices.

Peel and finely slice the red onion.
Finely slice the radishes.
Arrange the orange, fennel, red onion and radish slices on a platter.
Scatter over the black olives and parsley leaves.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper and drizzle with the olive oil.
