0.25 teaspoons fresh cracked black pepper

2 small carrots shaved into ribbons

2 oranges peeled and segmented

0.5 pounds baby kale

0.5 pounds baby spinach

4 ounces goat cheese log

1 large egg beaten

0.5 cup dry breadcrumbs

Place the goat cheese in the freezer for about 10 minutes and take out. Heat a frying pan with a couple tablespoons of olive oil. Slice the goat cheese and dip in egg and breadcrumbs. Fry until golden brown. Set aside.

Step 3

In a salad bowl, toss in the greens with the carrot ribbons and oranges. Reserve some of the carrots and oranges for garnish. Take the roasted fennel and gently toss in.
