After step 3 if you can, let the orange and salad dressing sit for 10 -15 minutes before adding the kale and fennel. This will allow the flavors of the dressing to blend. This will make for an even tastier salad, especially if you don’t have time to let the salad sit any length of time before serving.
The marinating technique used here for this salad only works with harder greens like cabbage and kale. Never leave tender greens like spinach, lettuce, or baby greens to sit in salad dressing. They will ‘cook’ and go brown.
