I found this recipe in the summer and tweaked it a bit. It is light and refreshing any time of year. Fennel is healthy for you in that it provides Antioxidant Protection and Immune Support from Vitamin C; Fiber, Foliate and Potassium for Cardiovascular and good Colon Health

Directions

Place the sliced fennel, romaine, blueberries and cranberries in a salad bowl. If adding fresh oranges, using a chef's knife, cut away the skin and the pith (the bitter white part), following the natural curve of the fruit. Working over a bowl to catch the juice, cut along each side of the membrane to free each section. Add to salad.

Combine remaining ingredients and let sit about 10 minutes. Drizzle over salad and mix well.
