Finely slice the red onion and fennel bulb, place in a bowl. Wash and chop the spinach, add to the bowl.
Slice the chilli down the middle and very carefully remove all the seeds and membranes, finely slice the chilli into thin strips and then cut these up into 3 millimetre lengths, add to the bowl.
Peel the orange and chop into small wedges retaining any juice and add to the rest of the salad. Finally add 1/2 packet of the broccoli sprouts and mix all the ingredients through each other and season to taste. Leave this salad for at least 10 minutes before serving as the flavours develop with time.
This is great as a side dish to fish or chicken, it has a freshness that lifts the palate.
