There are so many ways that you can deal with shaved fennel in a salad and I was contemplating all day on how I wanted to enjoy it. Yes, this is how I generally spend my weekend days, thinking about flavors and what "sounds good". Overall, citrus flavors go really well with fennel so I was primarily thinking of grapefruit or orange but was not in the mood to "eat" citrus in my salad so I decided to just make a citrus dressing to complement the fennel. Make it and enjoy!
What you Need:
1 bulb of fennel, thinly shaved
1/2 cup european cucumber, thinly shaved
1.5 squeezed lemons worth of juice
1 TBS dill
1/2 TBS Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Squeeze of 1 large orange
3 or more cups of Arugula
1/4-1/3 cup of feta cheese
Mix everything together, taste and add more of whatever you want. That's how cooking should be! Keep it simple, keep it in the moment.
