Fennel-and-Citrus Salad with Mint

Serving Size: 4
Total Time:

For his light, simple salad, chef Matthew Accarrino of San Francisco’s SPQR mixes grapefruit and orange segments with shaved fennel and a sweet-tart honey-lemon dressing.

Ingredients

  • 2 red grapefruits
  • 2 navel oranges
  • 2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • salt
  • 2 fennel bulbs—halved, cored and thinly sliced on a mandolin, 2 tablespoons of chopped fronds reserved
  • 2 Tbsp small mint leaves
  • 0.5 tsp ground coriander

Directions

  1. Using a sharp knife, cut the skin and white pith from the grapefruits and oranges. Working over a bowl, cut between the membranes to release the sections into the bowl. Squeeze the membranes to extract the juice.
  2. In a small bowl, stir the olive oil with the honey and lemon juice. Add 3 tablespoons of the citrus juice and season with salt. Reserve the remaining citrus juice for another use.
  3. In a shallow serving bowl, toss the fennel and citrus sections with the dressing. Garnish with the chopped fennel fronds, mint leaves and ground coriander and serve right away.
