Fennel and Walnut Salad
- Active Time 5m
- Total Time 5m
Fennel, a winter vegetable with a strong flavor, makes a simple but elegant accompaniment to a main course. To prepare this salad, the fennel must be sliced very thinly to separate the fibers and allow the flavor of the dressing to be absorbed. In ancient recipes fennel was often used to flavor sweet dishes.
- 6 fennel bulbs, sliced paper-thin
- 3 ounces walnuts, chopped
- Freshly ground white pepper
- 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
Put the fennel slices into a salad bowl and scatter on the chopped walnuts.
Thoroughly blend together the pepper, salt, oil and lemon juice. Toss the salad with the dressing and serve.
