Radicchio, Radish, and Fennel Salad

Radicchio, Radish, and Fennel Salad

Serves 8

30 minutes or fewer

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.
  • ½ cup pine nuts
  • 1 large head radicchio, quartered and thinly shredded
  • 6 red radishes, finely sliced
  • 1 fennel bulb, trimmed, halved, and finely sliced
  • 1 large cucumber, sliced into ¼-inch matchsticks
Lemon-Mint Dressing
  • ½ cup fresh mint leaves
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. pure maple syrup
  • 1½ Tbs. Dijon mustard

1. To make Salad: Toast pine nuts in skillet over medium heat 5 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer to plate to cool.

2. Combine radicchio, radishes, fennel, and cucumber in large bowl.

3. To make Lemon-Mint Dressing: Purée mint, lemon juice, oil, maple syrup, and mustard in blender until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Add dressing to salad; toss to coat, and garnish with toasted pine nuts.

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.

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!

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