This Fennel Orange Salad with Beets is one of Amelia’s fresh and delicious specialties. She loves to make this cold salad for us on a hot summer day.
Fennel is one of my favorite veggies. It smells like liquorice but it’s a vegetable! How is that even possible! Combined with the orange and beets, this salad smells and tastes like candy!
It’s great all by itself, but it’s even better served over arugula or your favorite leafy greens.
The beets are a nice addition and lend more sweetness to the salad. They take about 45 minutes to boil and need to cool for 10 to 15 minutes before you can peel them so keep that in mind when you’re planning your meal time.
Remember to zest the orange before you peel it. That’s a lot easier than trying to zest a peel.
