Orange, Tomato & Fennel Salad

This is super good for you (again)... and makes a nice change from a big green salad (or, actually, goes well together with a big green salad). Particularly good with seafood and fish recipes - and dead easy.


  • 1 Orange
  • 3 or 4 Tomatoes
  • Small bulb of Fennel
  • Mint, Parsley or Dill (or mixture)
  • Dressing

Shred or slice the Fennel very thinly (you could use a food processor slicer thingy)

Cut the peel off and slice the oranges

Chop larger tomatoes into slices, smaller ones into half

Chop all your herbs; parsley or mint would be best, but dill would work really well too, maybe rocket or chervil?

Layer the fennel, oranges and then tomatoes onto a plate

Sprinkle with your herbs and some salt & pepper.

I made a mustard dressing with Dijon (1 spoon), 1 tbsp lemon juice and 2 tbsp rape seed oil.

This was great with Pilav and Peppers, but would work really well with crab or mackerel or chicken.  Also a good match for tagines.
