Shaved Fennel Salad

Adapted from Alice Waters, The Art of Simple Food

To make the dressing, combine:

  • 2 Tbs fresh lemon juice
  • Zest of ¼ lemon, in thin curls, then chop
  • 1 tsp White Balsamic Vinegar
  • pinch salt
  • a few cracks of fresh ground black pepper

Whisk in:

Taste and adjust with salt if needed.

Trim off tops and root end from

  • 2 Fennel Bulbs reserving a few fronds for garnish

Slice with a mandolin—I like the $25 Japanese plastic ones—toss the fennel and 2 Tbsp chopped parsley with the dressing, and you’re done! 

As with many Art of Simple Food recipes, you will be shocked at how tasty such a simple, quick recipe can be.  Once adept, you can knock this salad out in 10 minutes.
