Shaved Fennel Salad

Print

When I announced I was making a fennel Parmesan salad, my father remarked something to the effect, “That sounds like something for ‘ladies who lunch’.” It does, doesn’t it?

It may seem like an odd idea to put Parmesan alongside fennel, but it’s actually quite good. The cheese perfectly complements the slight licorice hint of the fennel.

Thyme and parsley provide the accents along with a simple olive oil and lemon dressing.

    This is easy and absolutely delicious. Oh, and healthy, too! It is best with shaved parmesano reggiano but we ran out and I had to use grated romano which was pretty good as well but the reggiano makes it an outstanding salad. Thank you for the recipe.

    Wonder if I could just toss in. Grated parm

    You can also add thinly sliced celery to this recipe. Maybe one rib per fennel bulb.

    My first time eating fennel…I love it! A nice alternative to cole slaw. I served it as a side dish with grilled sausage.
