    I make almost the same salad, but I add chive blossoms when in season. I break a few up into the salad and then garnish with two or three more.

    The light purple colour is fantastic.

    I made this last night using grated pecorino romano and navel orange slices. Outstanding! I’ll have to try it with fresh thyme, and the almonds/watercress idea sounds great too.

    Try adding a few dots of pesto on the finished plate for an extra jolt of flavor. Really good!

    I was trying to remember this recipe yesterday at the grocery store, I forgot the key ingredient, parm, back to the store!

    Delicious. Tom Colicchio at Wichcraft adds tuna and olives to this to make a delicious mayo-free tuna salad. Really, really good!

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