Shaved Fennel & Citrus Salad with Meyer Lemon Dressing is a winter celebration in a bowl! These seasonal ingredients blend well together in this refreshing winter salad.  



2 fennel bulbs, halved and cored (approximately 4 cups)

2 oranges (choose from any seasonal variety)


1/4 cup olive oil

1 Meyer lemon zested & juiced (2 tbsp)

1 tsp liquid sweetener (maple syrup)

1/4 tsp salt

freshly ground black pepper

Optional: 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley (basil, mint, or cilantro)


  1. Thinly slice the fennel bulbs – using a mandoline slicer will give the best results (reserve 2 tbsp fennel fronds).
  2. Peel the orange, separate segments, and slice it into bite-sized pieces. (Tip: supreme the orange for best results).
  3. Use a Microplane to zest the lemon and then juice (2 tbsp). 
  4. Whisk the salad ingredients (oil, zest, juice, salt & herbs) together or combine in a covered glass jar & shake.
  5. Add the fennel, oranges, fronds to a bowl and blend with the desired amount of dressing on top. 
  6. Serve topped with a hint of freshly ground black pepper and fennel fronds.
