Fennel Apple Salad

"A simple, refreshing, savory-sweet salad. Thinly sliced fennel is tossed with apple, orange, herbs and an orange- Dijon vinaigrette. Would pair beautifully with grilled fish or roasted, herb chicken and a crisp white wine such as a Sancerre."

I was shocked at how much I loved this salad. The ingredients are an odd combination but they go together really well. Both savory and sweet, fresh and flavorful. I was able to use all the greens from my garden. Though I did make a couple minor substitutions - I used beet greens instead of chard because that's what I had growing. And I used a regular orange instead of a clementine, omitting the orange juice in the dressing. Finally, I used celery salt instead of celery seed and salt separately. The biggest surprise was how great the olives interacted with the rest of the ingredients. Fabulous! Each of the four servings this makes is pretty large. Add a hunk of meat, fish or a bean patty and you have a great summer meal.

I had to make this because the ingredient list was so crazy and the reviews so good. I thought it must be one of those recipes that don't seem like they can possibly work but do. It works okay but for me, it is as weird as the ingredient list seems like it would be.

This salad was amazing!!! It was perfect just the way it was written and I wouldn't change a thing. The dressing was the perfect compliment to it. Thanks for sharing...:)

We felt this salad was okay but really needed the balance from the smoked sausage I served with it. We don't eat fennel much, so maybe that was it. My husband said it wasn't too horrifying to eat.

I made the salad according to the directions, but my husband and I just could not finish it. We are more of a spinach salad with blue cheese and candied pecans type of family, and unfortunately this was just too far out of our comfort zone.
