Often likened in taste to licorice, fennel is in fact far more subtle with a texture similar to celery, and, unlike licorice, the flavor is savory. Raw fennel is cool and crunchy and excellent in salads.


  • 2 medium fennel bulbs, (8 ounces each)

  • 5 medium oranges

  • cup fresh parsley leaves

  • 2 tablespoons slivered, pitted black olives

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Trim fennel bulbs. Quarter, core, and thinly slice the bulbs crosswise.

  2. Using a paring knife, remove the peel and pith of oranges. Separate oranges into segments over a large bowl (to catch the juices), then add segments to bowl.

  3. Add fennel, parsley, olives, and oil; season with salt and pepper. Gently toss, and serve.
