Citrus Salad with Fennel

This was an easy and delicious salad that doesn't wilt easily so it's perfect for leftovers!!!

1 small fennel bulb, thinly sliced (remove top and root ends)
2 carrots, finely julienned
2 small pickling (Lebanese) cucumbers, thinly sliced
4 navel oranges
Zest of half a lemon
2 tbsp of chopped capers
4 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Divide the oranges into segments, taking care to retain as much of the juice as possible.  Set aside.
  • Place all sliced vegetables and the orange segments in a bowl.
  • In another small bowl, mix orange juice with capers, lemon zest and olive oil.  Whisk all.
  • Add dressing to salad and mix well.
  • ENJOY!!
