Orange & Fennel salad

If there's anything we know about French women is that they are stylish and they don't get fat. She's only been living in France for 6 months, but my friend Libby has a handle on both these things, with suggestions from striped tees to fresh vegetables. You'll see both those things in this recipe for a delicious salad she made one evening paired with duck and baby asparagus. Look for those recipes next, but until then, chomp on this:
