Fennel Salad with Thyme Vinaigrette

There’s just something simple about fennel and arugula that makes me feel happy. So, if you’re a fennel fan and you like arugula, too, why not toss in some fresh thyme? Oh yeah, and a little marjoram, too. This salad is a perfect side dish for any meal or can be served as an appetizer. Trust me on this one.

She’s a winner.

  • 1 teaspoon marjoram, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cup arugula
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped finely
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed oil
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Pinch of freshly ground white pepper
  • 1/3 cup cashews, chopped finely
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange zest

Directions

In a large bowl, combine the sliced fennel, fennel fronds, onion, marjoram, and arugula and toss gently to combine. In a small bowl, combine the thyme, oil, orange juice, balsamic vinegar, sea salt, and pepper and whisk well.

Fennel Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Fennel Cooking Tip

Different vegetables have different cooking times – cook each type separately and then combine.
