Ingredients

  • 2 blood oranges
  • 1 bulb fennel
  • 2 Cups arugula
  • 2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 10 Kalamata olives, for garnish
  • Shaved goat cheese, for garnish

Directions

Cut the top and bottom off the blood oranges and cut the peel and pith away, cutting into the orange as little as possible. Lay the orange on its side, cut into ¼-inch-thick slices, and arrange in a ring on a salad plate.

With a mandoline, shave the fennel as thinly as possible and place in a mixing bowl. Add the arugula and toss with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Garnish with the olives and shaved goat cheese.

Blood Orange Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
