Ingredients
  • 1 large bulb fennel, core and stems removed, fronds reserved
  • 3 navel oranges, peeled
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 20 oil-cured black olives
  • 2 ounces Parmesan, thinly shaved with a vegetable peeler
Directions

Halve the fennel and thinly slice with a mandolin or very sharp knife.

Segment the oranges over a bowl to catch any juices. Whisk together the orange juice, oil, shallots, salt and pepper. Add the fennel, orange segments and spinach, and toss to coat.

Divide the salad among 4 plates and top each with 5 olives. Top each salad with cheese and the reserved fennel fronds.
