Orange and fennel is a classic combination that creates a wonderful flavor profile. Because these two flavors are so distinct, it is best to let them have center stage when they come together. There is no need to complicated things when you are working with these two ingredients. In fact, you may find that adding a green leafy lettuce to this dish is unnecessary.

Whenever possible, mix together the vinaigrette ingredients in advance. Giving this combination a chance to meld makes a big difference.
