Enjoy your fennel raw!

Shaved Fennel with oranges, poppy seeds and mixed greens
1 large fennel bulb, trimmed, 2 medium oranges, peeled, 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, 1 teaspoon poppy seeds, 2 cups mixed lettuce greens.  How to:  Shave the fennel bulb into thin slices with a knife or mandolin.  Cut oranges into slices, cutting across the segments and remove the seeds.  Place oranges and fennel in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil.  Let salad marinate for 5-10 minutes to allow the flavors to blend.  Top with poppy seeds and add greens and serve.  Simple and tasty.
