Citrus & Fennel Salad

This colorful salad is perfect for brightening up a gloomy winter day. In Los Angeles, we have access to amazing fennel and citrus at this time of year, and this salad was created to highlight the seasonal flavors and texture. At Picnic LA, we use exceptional J.J.’s Lone Daughter Ranch Valencia oranges and Underwood Family Farms sweet fennel. Savoy cabbage adds a satisfying crunch, while citrus juice bursts through with tons of flavor.

Fennel Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Fennel Cooking Tip

Different vegetables have different cooking times – cook each type separately and then combine.
