    This is simple to make. The flavours of orange and fennel compliment each other well and are a delicious change from the usual green salad..  -  02 May 2011


    Used different ingredients. This is absolutely delicious, and I now make it every week or two! The first time I brought it to work, people thought I had gotten it at a posh shop. They kept saying, "Wow, it looks beautiful!" The flavour was wonderful. I also threw in some dried cranberries, which really added to the presentation. If you really wanted to be fancy, you could throw some toasted chopped pecans on there. brilliant recipe!  -  24 Jul 2008
