1/2 red onions, thinly sliced 80 g
4 oranges, blood type, if available 700 g
1 fennels, thinly sliced 360 g

2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 3/4 lemon
1/2 tsp mustard powder 1 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

A mandolin will make slicing the fennel easier.


  1. In a small bowl, soak the thinly sliced onion in water with few drops of vinegar about 10 min while preparing the rest of the salad.
  2. Peel the oranges with a sharp knife, removing all of the white pith from the flesh. Save the juice resulting from the peeling. Cut the oranges into 7 mm thick rounds, then place the rounds in a salad bowl.
  3. Remove and discard the stalk and feathery leaves of the fennel. Thinly slice the bulb with a mandolin, then add it to the bowl.
  4. Put the oil, reserved orange juice, lemon juice, mustard, salt, and pepper in a small bowl, then whisk until the vinaigrette is emulsified. Pour the vinaigrette over the salad, add the onion, toss well, then serve.
