Spring salad with oranges, walnuts and orange-fennel vinaigrette


Time for preparing: 20 minutes

  • 8 slices of prosciutto, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups arugula sprouts, washed and wiped dry
  • 1 onion fennel
  • 1 large orange, peeled and cut into slices (save juice)
  • 3 slices of fresh basil, chopped
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Method 1 Making Salad

You can skip the first 2 steps if you know how to cut fennel onion chips.

  1. 1 Use a shredder to chop fennel shavings.
    • Tune the shredder blade to thin slices.
    • Place the fennel bulb on a chopping board.
    • Trim the base of the bulb with a sharp knife.
    • Divide the onion in half.
    • Remove the core of the onion.
    • Put half of the fennel bulb with the base on the splint.
    • Slide the onion along the splint through the blade back and forth so that the fennel chips fall down onto a cutting board or bowl.
    • Go to the base of the other half of the bulb if the first has become too small to be safe to handle.
  2. 2 Cut the fennel shavings with a peeler if you don’t have a splint.
    • Separate the base of fennel.
    • Cut the fennel bulb into quarters.
    • Remove the core from each quarter.
    • Take a quarter of the fennel bulb in one hand.
    • Make gliding movements with a vegetable cutter along the surface of the onion, allowing the chips to fall onto a cutting board or bowl.
    • Go to the other quarters if the workpiece becomes too small, and further cutting chips off it will be dangerous.
  3. 3 Pour fennel shavings into a medium-sized mixing bowl.
  4. 4 Add basil, orange slices and juice, olive oil, salt and pepper to the fennel shavings.
  5. 5 Thoroughly mix the ingredients.
  6. 6 Divide the arugula into portions and place on 4 plates.
  7. 7 On top of each serving of arugula, add a mixture of fennel.
  8. 8 Put 2 slices of prosciutto on each plate with arugula.

Method 2 Making Vinaigrette Sauce

When serving, it is desirable that this sauce is at room temperature.

  1. 1 Combine red wine vinegar, mustard, oregano and olive oil in a small bowl.
  2. 2 Beat until the ingredients mix well.
  3. 3 Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. 4 Pour the vinaigrette sauce into the gravy boat.
  5. 5 Serve in a gravy boat.
