For this elegant salad, sweet-tasting fennel bulbs are thinly sliced and tossed with salty toasted pistachios, sweet oranges and tangy lime juice. Jícama or radishes add another layer of texture and earthy flavor.

Very refreshing and easy to make with the help of a mandoline slicer. I made the radish version and think it would be quite different with jicama. I used 2 small fennel bulbs instead of the single bulb called for in the recipe. Read More

Pros: Wonderful use of fresh ingredients Read More
