Crisp slices of raw fennel are dressed simply with a lemon vinaigrette and topped with shaved Parmesan in this elegant salad. Serve with fish or chicken or enjoy as a light lunch with bruschetta topped with diced tomato and basil.

  1. Whisk together the lemon juice, oil, a pinch of salt and 2 tablespoons water in a medium bowl.
  2. Cut off the fennel stalks and fronds. Finely chop 1/4 cup of the fronds and add them to the bowl of dressing; discard the stalks.
