Preparation

  1. To make Salad: Layer ingredients in 3-quart, straight-sided glass bowl, starting with chickpeas, then in order spread one-third dandelion greens followed by all olives and onions. Top with another one-third greens and with half orange slices. Sprinkle cheese over oranges, and top with nuts and fennel. Cover salad with remaining oranges and greens.
  2. To make Dressing: Whisk dressing ingredients together until well blended. Drizzle over salad, and serve.

Wine Suggestions

Many of the ingredients in this salad are wine-loving foods: Beans, greens, cheeses, nuts and oils. When pairing the salad with wine, focus on these foods but also consider the tartness of the oranges and the sherry vinegar. A slightly acidic, medium-body Chardonnay would pair nicely with the finished dish.
