This week’s Healthy-e-Recipe for Pan-Seared Fennel and Orange Salad features an array of delicious tastes in one healthy, low-calorie dish at only 120 calories per serving.
Fennel, a root vegetable, looks like celery but has a larger bulb at the bottom and thin, feathery fronds that look and taste a little like the herb dill when it’s fresh. It’s crisp and slightly sweet with the hint of licorice. Its fresh taste blends beautifully in this recipe with orange and olives.
Red onion perks this salad with the anti-cancer phytochemicals found in all members of the onion family, including garlic. Tossed with fresh baby greens and drizzled with a mustardy dressing, this is a piquant salad that can complement chicken, fish or white beans.
