I loved this, the kids hated it. Loved the flavors & freshness. Great submission!
This is like eating a carrot cake salad! I like the cinnamon (taking over in flavor) the sweet crunchy and tangy salad. The fennel did get lost in this. Needs to be seasoned with a generous amount of salt and some fresh cracked pepper.
I'm iffy about this recipe. I liked the combination of flavours and textures, but the dressing really did not add to the salad's appeal - just a lot of orange juice swimming around on our salad plates. Wish I could give it more, but it needs a bit of work.
