simple green salad with fennel

This salad is extremely simple and full of flavor.  The fennel is what makes it so good….well the fennel and really tossing the salad with seasoning.  I find salads are often not dressed properly which is what makes a big difference.  Make sure you taste it before serving and add more salt, lemon or olive oil if all the flavors are not coming together.

thoughts&stories

You can do a variety of different lettuces for the salad- pick your favorite.  I like the bitterness of the arugula contrasted with the sweet, licorice flavor of fennel.  It is also delicious if you roast the fennel and serve over the greens.

Wines

Sauvignon Blanc- New Zealand, California, the Loire in France or Bordeaux
