We love cooking up seasonal dishes with fresh ingredients we harvest from our garden. Fennel lends a mild licorice flavor and a crunchy texture to meals and in the garden, attracts one of our favorite pollinators, the bees! Plant in full sun behind shorter growing herbs for a stunning backdrop. We’ve already discussed all the reasons we love zesty citrus, both on our plates and in the garden, so this Shaved Fennel & Orange Salad is just the dish we’ve been searching for!
