Useful Suggestions

This salad is very healthy thanks to the main ingredients, the fennel, with diuretic and anti-oxidant properties and the orange, rich in Vitamin C, a real help for our immune system, but actually you’ll be surprised by its particular and fresh taste.

Suggested Wine

Fennel’s main feature is a sweet taste. On the other hand in our salad the orange will be the key ingredient, so we suggest a pairing with a white wine matching with this acid element. Our choice is a good white wine produced in the South of Italy, fragrant and soft but with a firm alcoholic structure.
