I dare you to attach the word “deprivation” to this salad. The bitter blood orange, the earthy miso, the crunchy fennel, the hit of sweet juice and the bite of arugula all come together in a festival of flavors and textures.

1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (not blood orange)
2 tablespoons white miso paste
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
salt and freshly-ground black pepper to taste
1/2 pound arugula
2 fennel bulbs, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint
1 small red onion, peeled and thinly sliced
2 blood oranges, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts

Shake together orange juice, miso, oil, sugar, ginger and a pinch of salt and pepper in a tight-sealing jar.

Toss together arugula, fennel, mint and onion. Drizzle dressing over top and toss well. Divide mixture among four plates. Arrange orange sections and pine nuts on top.

Serves 4

    One of my favorite winter salads is shaved fennel and celery (I use a mandoline) with a citrusy vinaigrette with supremes of blood orange. Crunchy fresh. Really good with a braised dinner.

    I think shaved celery is one of the most missed pleasures of the salad bowl. Really good with thinly sliced mushrooms and parm too!

    I’m all over this! I’ve been making something similar with shaved red cabbage. Thanks
