Shaved Fennel Salad
Shaved Fennel Salad

Simple and lightly shaved fennel salad with olive oil, lemon juice, thyme, parsley and parmesan.

When I announced that I was going to make a fennel and parmesan salad, my dad remarked something along the lines of, “That sounds like something for ‘ladies who have lunch.'” (Does that still exist?) Well, for everyone who eat “lunch”, this grated fennel salad hits the right note – cool, crispy and hearty.

It might seem strange to combine parmesan with fennel, but the combination works well. The fennel retains its crisp texture even when thinly sliced, and its licorice flavor beautifully complements the warm, salty, cheesy spiciness of Parmesan.

This is a quick and easy to make salad that’s perfect for lunch or as a side salad for dinner.
