Orange, Fennel and Onion Salad

Orange, Fennel and Onion Salad // wishfulchef.comI’m a big fan of adding fruit to my salads, especially oranges. I just love the vibrant color and flavor they bring. This particular salad is the perfect blend of Mediterranean flavors, with sliced oranges, fennel, onion and olives.

Make sure to use juicy oranges, like Valencia. This simple and easy dish is best eaten outside on a hot summer day along with a glass of refreshing sangria. Another great Mediterranean salad to try is this flavorful kale salad with oranges and blueberries.

      How beautiful! I love this salad with winter citrus. But my favorite version was in Rome, where the restaurant used blood oranges. Gorgeous!

      This is one of my favorite combinations. It’s so simple, fresh, and satisfying. I love to use blood oranges in the winter.
