What a delicious salad! The peppery arugula goes beautifully with the refreshing vinaigrette. I used fresh mandarin oranges and fresh-squeezed juice. This salad would be perfect for a dinner party.
Scrumptious! I made this on NYE for a dinner party and it was a HUGE success. I did not add the radishes, and also used some fresh and 1 can of mandarine oranges to the salad.
Forgot the parmesan and it was still wonderful. The vinaigrette was light and not overpowering. The oranges we happened to pick up were really sweet. Used apple cider vinegar instead of white wine and that was fine. Didn't have time to toast the fennel seeds. Made it for some friends needing a pick-me-up and this really helped.
