Shaved fennel salad with honey mustard dressing
This shaved fennel salad, dressed with a sweet and zingy honey mustard vinaigrette is a delicious and refreshing summer dish. This crunchy side salad shines wonderfully alongside grilled chicken, pork, fish and seafood dishes.
- 1 large fennel bulb very thinly sliced
- 3 tablespoons olive oil extra virgin
- 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon honey
- sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, salt, pepper, mustard and honey. Mix well. Add the olive oil and whisk into a creamy consistency.
Cut the fennel lengthwise in half. Use a sharp knife to trim off the green fennel fronds, the hard bottom and the core of the fennel bulb. Use a mandolin to slice the fennel paper thin.
Transfer the sliced fennel in to a large bowl and toss with the honey mustard dressing to coat.
Serve and garnish with the green fennel fronds.
