A Sunshine Salad..Limoneira Oranges and Fennel

By Marialiberati

“If the family were a fruit it would be an orange, a circle of sections, held together but separable-each segment distinct”…Letty Cottin Pogrebin (American Journalist)

Oranges are my favorite way to ‘let a little sunshine in’ during the cold days of winter.  An easy way to bring sunny oranges to your winter table is this fresh salad containing fresh fennel and oranges. My favorite oranges are produced by Limoneira, for this recipe I used their lusciously sweet yet slightly tart navel oranges. And while you are eating this salad you may want to read about the interesting history of Limoneira. And it’s nice to know that these are oranges produced in the USA…..
