When raw fennel bulb, also called Florence fennel or finocchio, is sliced into almost translucent ribbons and studded with juicy orange bits, it transforms into the most refreshing salad.
Anchovies love fennel, oranges, and garlic, and they love anchovies back. Combine preserved anchovies with garlic for a snappy salad dressing.
Traditionally, serve shaved fennel salad as an appetizer. As the unexpected side dish? Pair it with baked salmon, bass, halibut, or haddock. Make it a twosome with grilled lamb chops, chicken, pork, sausage, or beef main dishes. Try it with sushi and sushi rolls! Great combos that will make you smile.
