Fennel and Orange Salad "Ilva"
Somestimes She Cooks


Fennel and Orange Salad
Inspired by Ilva of "Lullian Delights"

I read Ilva's recipe, and 20 minutes later,
I had a healthy salad ready for lunch.
Basically Ilva's recipe, but I used fennel
instead of the carrot and added a
tablespoon of white balsamic vinegar
because my oranges (Tarocco from Italy)
needed a bit more zing

Ingredients for 2 servings
1 fennel bulb
4 large strawberries
1 orange
Juice of 1 orange
1 heaped tablespoon candied ginger
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger root
1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar

I did not add honey -
the strawberries were sweet already
I did not peel the organic orange because I like
the added bitterness

And here is Ilva's original recipe for
TANGIBLE SUNSHINE – ORANGE AND CARROT SALAD WITH GINGER
Bon appetit!

-> Krauthobel (Wooden Mandoline Slicer) - the one I use is an heirloom - incredible workhorse, indestructible. I use it, rinse it with cold water and air dry it). There is an inscription burned into the wood: PANTA 1040 - if you live in Austria, you may still find it at open markets or in old-fashioned houseware stores.

-> Krauthobel - The Band - Musicians from Vorarlberg, the westernmost region of Austria. This is a song about the Montafon valley, country music, Vorarlberg style. If you click on the "Vorarlberg" label, you'll see why I fell in love with its beauty and the people when I visited last year.

  10. It looks purty. I have to say it sounds awful to a carnivore such as myself. :) I'm sure it is wonderful though.
