Holiday Recipe Roundup: INSALATA DI FINOCCHIO E ARANCIALianne McDonnell-Kruger - Sat Dec 18, 2010 @ 03:19AM
Hello Slow Foodies!Today's recipe comes recommended by Carol Malzone, a Slow Food fan who also runs the blog, Flavors of Rome. Her Fennel and Orange Salad is light and refreshing.
As she notes, blood oranges work best, but you can use just about any orange. So if you have an orange tree, grab one from your own backyard!
Blogger's Notes: As many of you know, Slow Food started in Italy, so we have a special place for Italian cooking in our hearts. We often bemoan the fact that too many people's perceptions of Italian cooking are colored by Olive Gardens and Macaroni Grills, which often rely on heavy and fatty sauces for "flavor." If you want to catch a glimpse of authentic Italian cooking, Carol's Flavor's of Rome Website contains several simple and authentic Italian dishes for you to try! So click around and cook up some tasty fun for you and your family this holiday season!
