Orange and Fennel Salad

Hi internet space,

Wow, I can't believe it's been 1.5 years since the last post! So basically, I was on a trip to Sri Lanka recently when I had a bit of an epiphany, I missed blogging. I missed the excitement of documenting my recipes, experimenting with photography and writing and especially this little space I can call my own.

So here I am, back for good I hope. With a simple recipe to slowly ease my way back.

This salad is tangy, fresh and so easy to throw together. The cranberries add a touch of sweetness while the almonds add an extra element of crunch. The flavours pair perfectly with any grilled or barbequed meat or fish.
