I recently noticed red oranges at our food coop and was excited to try them. They were fantastically sweet and juicy, and were perfect on this salad, but any good oranges will do.
SHAVED FENNEL AND ENDIVE SALAD WITH ORANGES
3 oranges (if you see red oranges they are a beautiful addition)
1 bulb fennel, very thinly sliced (use a mandoline if you have one), reserve fronds for garnish
1/2 cucumber, seeds removed, very thinly sliced
2-3 heads endive, depending on size, sliced into 1 inch pieces
juice of half a lemon
a drizzle extra virgin olive oil
coarse sea salt and freshly ground pepper
Remove the peel, pith, and outer membranes of the oranges by following the curve of the fruit. Slice into 1/4 inch thick rounds. Place all remaining ingredients in a serving bowl and toss until combined. Arrange orange slices over top of salad and garnish with fennel fronds.
