Cara Cara Salad with Fresh Fennel & Arugula Greens

This citrus-kissed salad is beautifully presented with Cara Cara oranges slices and crisp fennel.

Ingredients:
2 Cara Cara oranges
½ pound arugula greens
1-2 fennel bulbs, quartered, cored and thinly sliced, plus a small handful of the fronds
¼ cup good-quality Parmesan cheese, shaved
Farm & Larder citrus vinaigrette
Fresh ground pepper, to taste

Method:
1. Spread arugula out on a large, round serving platter to make a bed.

2. Using a sharp paring knife, cut the tops and bottoms off the oranges. Stand oranges up and slice to remove the peel and membrane. Then, slice oranges crosswise into thin wheels.

3. Scatter fennel over the arugula greens, then top with the orange slices. Drizzle several tablespoons of the vinaigrette over the salad and toss lightly to coat. Top salad with fennel fronds, shaved Parmesan cheese and a dash of fresh ground pepper, if desired.
