My original title of this BLOG was Veggie of the Month. After checking other blogs on the Internet I saw that this title was already overused. In this area Veggie of the Month is not just a title but a reality. You will find certain vegetables that are grown in this area in the markets until you might scream...NO MORE! I now look forward to some vegetables but I have yet to become fond of zucchini. We are fortunate to have wonderful family and neighbors who come to our door on a regular basis offering vegetables. Finnochio is the featured vegetable this month. I suspect broccoli will be edging it out soon.
Finnochio salad is a favorite of mine. I am happy when it comes to the market. We have it several times per week. I do cook it but my favorite recipe is finnochio salad with oranges.
1 finocchio bulb
1 small onion
Just use the 1 bulb finocchio to 1 orange proportion. Don't add vinegar or lemon juice as the juice from the orange will do the job just fine.
