Lighten Up with Fruit in Your Salad

Orange and Fennel Salad

I’m guessing it’s time for fruit and something much lighter than the fare you’ve been eating at your Seders.

I’m keeping it fresh and simple with this Orange and Fennel Salad from our Passover eBook, 4 Bloggers Dish: Passover. This vegan, pareve, gluten-free salad is so easy to make and so refreshing, you’ll want to make it all year round.

This simple salad is a great palate cleanser. Use the juiciest oranges you can find (really great with winter citrus).
