Radicchio, Radish, and Fennel Salad

This refreshing salad demonstrates how very thin slicing can take the edge off strongly flavored vegetables such as radicchio, fennel, and radishes. While all the veggies for this recipe can be sliced ahead of time, wait until the last minute to add the Lemon-Mint Dressing. This will prevent the delicate veggie pieces from getting soggy.

Comments on this Recipe

While this recipe was a nice change and something different, I don't think it was all that great.

This salad is wonderful! I followed the recipe very faithfully so I could try it as written and my husband and I both loved it. I'm looking forward to leftovers tonight (I kept the dressing and salad separate so it didn't get soggy). The dressing is outstanding and would liven up any kind of salad. Thanks, Vegetarian Times!

tasty refreshing and crunchy. Only thing I changed was instead of 1/2 cup of oil I used 1/4 cup and replaced the rest with water to reduce the cals.
