a freggie recipe: fennel salad; open to suggestions for improvement

Friday, June 14, 2013

have to admit that i'm producing this recipe from memory... from about thirty years ago, so I don't remember the details.

chop up fenchel and orange into bite-sized pieces, about equal amounts.

emoticon whoops, no pic of fennel

as a sauce use something dairy, like a bit of crème fraiche or whipping cream, or thin it out with a little milk or water to reduce calories; spice it a little with a touch of ginger,
(salt? pepper? sugar? dill?)

and add a few chopped walnuts.

now all you great cooks out there can advise on how to improve this recipe.

    Some toasted nuts or seeds? Avocado? Grilled shrimp? A vinaigrette? (I really, really want to say bacon, but I won't).

    Personally, if you use dried fruit in the salad (like raising or dried cherries or apricots) I wouldn't see the need for sugar to my taste anyway.

    Sounds like a delicious salad! I think I'd tend more towards something like a raspberry vinagiarette

    LOL - I figured out it was German right after my last comment ;) Let me know if any of the additions I mentioned sound or taste good. Maybe I'll try it.

    More I think about it, more I think you meant to say fennel - fennel and orange salad is popular on the recipe sites. Ideas: Olive oil, Black olives, dried cranberries, red wine vinigar, some chopped onions, arugula . . .

    I never heard of fenchel and can't find it on Google. Now fennel I know about . . . I make a great fennel, veggie soup ;)
    Surely that's not what you're talking about??
