Ensalada Fresca

What is it about a hot fall day that leads you to crave a salad...Red Onion, Valencia Orange and Fennel Salad.
Whatever it is, I found myself on the road to culinary creation.

These are the steps I took to put it together:

First gather all your mis en place

Then work your way through the ingredients--fennel

Red onion...

Orange Supremes...and make a little candied orange rind while you're at it
Just for fun, I'm going to also candy a few pistachios...
I always like to pull out the mortar and pestle

Now let's put the pieces together for a feast!

Definitely a great endeavor when you have free time on your hands!!
