Fennel Citrus Salad with Sesame Dressing

This is a nice way to use fennel. The more the merrier on the citrus types. You can make this ahead and let it sit for an hour or so to kinda marinate it.

For Salad:

2 large heads of fennel sliced thinly (white part at base of stalk only)
2 oranges peeled, seeded, and sliced into chunks
2 small or 1 large grapefruit peeled, seeded and sliced into chunks
1 Tangelo peeled, seeded and sliced into chunks

For Dressing:

2 Tbl. Sesame oil (toasted is best)
2 Tbl. Rice wine vinegar
1/2 tsp. Salt
Juice of one medium or two small lemons (watch the seeds)

1 tsp. chile flakes (optional)

For Garnish:

2 Tbl. Black sesame seeds
1/4 cup of green fronds from the fennel

Cut and combine the fruits and vegetables in a bowl mixing well. Make the dressing in a separate container. Shake well and add to salad. Mix well. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and fennel fronds just before serving.

Uhmm, I like food. I like farms. I guess a farmers' market is a good place to be for both of those things.
