Fennel Salad with Beets and Oranges with Balsamic Vinaigrette
This recipe serves:   

For the Salad:
1 fennel bulb, peeled and thinly sliced
2 beets, peeled
2 oranges
1/2 Bermuda onion, thinly sliced into rings

For the Vinaigrette:
1 tablespoon freshly chopped shallots
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
4 tablespoons olive oil
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper

Cooking Instructions
For the Salad:

1. Place beets in a sauce pan of cold water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until beets are easily pierced with the tip of a knife. Drain, cool, peel and slice thinly.

2. Peel the oranges and remove the segments over a bowl to reserve the juice.

For the Vinaigrette:

1. Place all of the ingredients for the vinaigrette plus the reserved orange juice in a container with a tight fitting lid. Shake well.

2. Adjust the salt and pepper to taste.

3. Toss the fennel with half of the vinaigrette and arrange fennel slices in a large ring on a serving platter.

4. In the same manner, dress the beet slices with the remaining vinaigrette and arrange them in a ring just inside the fennel.

5. Place the orange segments in the center of the salad.

6. Scatter the onion rings over the entire salad.

Serving Size: about 1 cup of salad with 2 tablespoons of vinaigrette
