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.
