  • 2 large fennel bulbs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 6 tablespoons orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 2 large navel oranges, peeled and sliced
  • Salad greens


  1. Remove fronds from fennel bulbs; set aside for garnish. Cut bulbs into thin slices. In a large skillet, saute fennel slices in oil and butter until crisp-tender.
  2. Stir in the juices, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium. Cook and stir until fennel is tender, 5-6 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat; stir in orange segments. Serve over salad greens; top with reserved fennel fronds.
