Arugula and Orange Salad

Arugula is an interesting green and yummy green, yet sometimes people do not know what to do with it.

I made this Arugula and Orange salad for one of my clients and she loved it so much so is having me make it for one of her upcoming soirees. It is a great salad, packed with flavor and can be served up beside all of kosher soul food fixins.

Nosh on,

Arugula & Orange Salad:

1 large fennel bulb
1 red onion, shaved paper thin
2 cup mandarin orange segments
6 bunches fresh arugula
1 cup walnuts

1 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1. Trim off the top off the fennel bulb. Slice the fennel and onion paper thin.
