Super Quick Summer Salad

Make room on your table for this light yet bold Fennel and Orange Summer Salad! As far as side salads go, this one is a real super hero! You'll love the contrast between the goji berries, orange pieces and gorgeous rocket leaves (and the fact it can be whipped up in minutes).

We'll be making this salad along with the rest of our Christmas lunch spread but there's no reason you couldn't make this delicious salad any time of year. We love the fusion of textures in this salad with the crunchiness of the nuts and fresh fennel paired with the juicy pieces of orange and goji berries. Transform this into a main meal by adding some additional vegetables or protein.
