  • 1 small fennel bulb
  • 1 medium sweet onion
  • 2 tangerines
  • 2 c baby arugula washed and dried
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • good quality olive oil or your favorite dressing


  1. Slice the fennel and onion as thinly as possible, preferably using a mandolin or food processor.
  2. Cut off the very top and bottom of each tangerine. Then peel the fruit with your knife. Next—and this is the tricky part—carefully slice the fruit between the membrane and the flesh. Repeat with all of the segments of both tangerines.
  3. Toss the fennel, onion, tangerine and arugula in a medium mixing bowl. And top with salt, pepper and your favorite dressing to taste. (A splash of premium olive oil recommended.)
