Shaved Fennel & Orange Salad

Shaved Fennel and Orange Salad
by Chef Gail Churinetz

Ingredients:
1 small fresh fennel bulb
1 1/2 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice, about 1 lemon
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
Salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
½ tsp. dried parsley
2 large orange’s, peel & segmented
2 tbsp. freshly squeezed orange juice (about ½ orange)
2 tbsp. Lyle’s Golden Syrup
2 tbsp. finely chopped fresh mint
Fresh fennel sprigs for garnish

Directions:
Cut off the top of the fennel at the base of the stalk and remove the outer layer of the bulb. Slice the bottom portion off the base of the bulb, leaving the root end intact. Thinly slice the trimmed fennel bulb into paper-thin slices.
Attractively arrange the fennel slices on a serving platter. Sprinkle the lemon juice evenly over the fennel, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, pepper and parsley.
Combine the orange segments, orange juice, Lyle’s Golden Syrup, chopped mint in a small mixing bowl. Toss to combine and place the mixture over the sliced fennel. Garnish with fennel sprigs and serve at room temperature.
