  • Instructions

    Step 1. 

    Clean fennel bulbs, trim fronds (set aside for garnish) and shave paper thin with a mandoline or sharp knife, starting from the trimmed end and finishing at the root end.  Peel oranges, then remove outer white pith thoroughly and cut between membranes into supremes.  Repeat with grapefruit. Set aside.


    Step 2. 

    Toast pine nuts in a dry skillet for a minute or two over medium heat, stirring or tossing constantly and being careful not to burn.

    Toss shaved fennel and fruit with Vinaigrette.  Place salad over a few baby spinach leaves and garnish with pine nuts and fennel fronds.


    Step 3.  Ginger-Honey Vinaigrette

    Place Fustini's Ginger & Honey Balsamic, shallots and mustard in a bowl.  Blend with a handheld blender or whisk.  Slowly add Fustini's Single Varietal olive oil, continuing to blend or whisk until dressing has emulsified.  Add scallions and season with salt and pepper.  Makes 2 cups.
