Mealthy Tip

Toasting the fennel seeds before crushing brings out their aroma and flavor. If you don't have a mortar and pestle, you can grind the fennel seeds in a coffee grinder. No coffee grinder? Put the seeds into a zip-top plastic bag; seal the bag and whack with a rolling pin or a heavy skillet. Try fresh peaches or apricots instead of the oranges if they are in season!

I love that there's molasses in this dressing, it's so nice with the fennel. I used chopped baby kale for a more mild approach, as I'm just a kale beginner.

I don't use fennel a lot, but I really love the way it tasted in this salad. Oranges are in season right now, and next time I want to try this using blood oranges or maybe even grapefruit. The citrus flavors are really delicious when paired with the sweet and garlicky dressing.

I skipped the fennel and swapped molasses for real maple syrup in the vinaigrette. If you like citrusy salads, you should try this recipe. Next time I may add some grapefruit juice to the vinaigrette or even sliced ruby reds.

Grinding the fennel seeds in the coffee grinder was such a great idea, it worked perfectly. It made for a delicious vinaigrette.

Made this with organic spinach and use syrup in the dressing instead of molasses. It was very sweet, but came together nicely with grilled fish.
