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.
