Ingredients

1 large head fennel , sliced thinly, stalks and fronds removed
1 small sweet red onion , peeled and thinly sliced in rings
2/3 cup mixed olives , such as Nicoise, cracked green or Sicilian
2 1/4 cups cranberry juice
3 tablespoons coarsely chopped sun-dried cranberries
1 tablespoon finely chopped shallots
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar (or to taste)
2 teaspoons chopped, fresh dill

Cooking Instructions

For the salad:

1. Arrange the oranges, fennel and onions attractively on a plate (fennel should be upright, if possible). Scatter olives around and drizzle vinaigrette over.

For the vinaigrette:

1. Place 2 cups of cranberry juice in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Continue to boil over high heat until liquid is reduced by half.

2. Separately, add the remaining 1/4 cup cranberry juice and the sun-dried cranberries and allow them to plump.

3. While the juice is reducing, sauté shallots in olive oil until soft, but not brown.

4. In a blender or food processor, puree the reduction and shallots until smooth.

5. Place the mixture in a bowl and whisk in remaining ingredients including the oil and softened cranberries. The vinaigrette can be stored, covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Serving Size: 1 cup salad with 2 tablespoons vinaigrette
