Fennel and spinach with an orange vinaigrette.
Before you start
A mandolin will make slicing easier.
- Finely chop the onion, then put it in a small bowl and cover it with water and a few drops of vinegar. Let it soak for 30 min (you may leave it up to overnight in the refrigerator). This makes the raw onion easier to digest and crispier.
- Prepare the fennel : Trim and discard the stalk and feathery leaves. Also discard any tough outer layers of the bulb, then thinly slice the fennel bulb crosswise using a mandolin. Put the slices in a salad bowl.
- Prepare the spinach and add it to the bowl. Stir in the olives.
- Pour the orange juice in a separate small bowl. Pour in the lemon juice and olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste, then beat well using a fork, until the vinaigrette is emulsified. Pour it over the salad and toss well.
- Let stand 10 min before serving.

Lovely fresh tasting and the fennel does NOT overpower which is good.
