A fresh salad in a red wine balsamic vinaigrette. The salad features fresh watercress, sliced fennel, cranberries, diced radicchio, garlic and toasted pecans.
Crumbled gorgonzola cheese would be a fabulous addition to this already delicious salad.
This salad really grew on me. It was a 4 with the first few bites, but by the time I finished, I wanted more. I halved the recipe, and even that made a ton--but the leftovers are just as good. If you have a mandoline, I'd suggest using that to cut the fennel nice and thin so it'll blend better with the salad, or you could use a food processor with the slicer blade. The only change I'd suggest is to add more cranberries and pecans, because they add a lot to the flavor but get somewhat lost with the amount of veggies. - 20 Jan 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was so easy and delicious. Made a weeknight meal feel special. Didn't have radichio on hand so left it out and it was still great. - 26 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is a very delicious salad if you can find some nice fresh fennel and watercress. Try Whole Foods. - 25 Nov 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
