"A great summer or fall salad with a lemon dressing. Great for company! This makes very large portions of a side salad, so it can be for 4 to 6 people depending on the portion given."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

After experiencing (and loving!) a Stilton/fennel salad at a local restaurant - I quickly went and bought 5 fennels- with no idea how to make it. This was a crunchy and rich recipe I'll be adding to the recipe book. I also made a version with romaine lettuce instead of arugula and added a little white balsamic- refreshing!!!! Thanks Chrissiek:)
We tried this salad tonight and were not overly impressed. All we could taste was the parmesan, maybe because we bought is pre-grated? It's worth another try but we will definitely leave out the cheese.
I usually use a mandolin to slice the fennel and a milk frother stick to mix the dressing. Be careful with the dressing as it is very tart and a little goes a long way. This salad is tart and delicious!
Delicious and tangy!
This is amazing! I had some fennel from my CSA which I was looking to use as well as some arugula. Normally this is nothing I would have made but let me tell you..... it was really terrific! Even my kids liked it! I didn't change a thing and it was perfect! It's important to use freshly squeezed lemon juice and freshly grated parmesan and also to toast the pine nuts. It combines to be a wonderful salad!
A delicious and bright salad! Possibly the best I've tasted in a years time!
Amazing salad! I've taken this to two dinner parties and everyone was raving about it and asking for the recipe (and it's hard to wow people with salad!). The fennel and arugula are great together but the real winner is the dressing (such fresh flavor...would be good on any salad). I did make one change...I added 2 tsp of honey because it was a little too tart for my taste. But the flavor was great even without the honey and some may like it really tart.
Very good! Nice contrast of flavors.
