Let’s Get To Work!

Alright! Here we go with your shopping list:

– 1 bag or bunch of fresh arugula leaves
– 1 bulb of fennel
– A handful of radishes
– 1 fresh lemon
– Olive oil
– Honey
– Salt and Pepper for seasoning

And now for the fun part, let’s get to it:

– Start off by washing the arugula leaves, and then give them a good ol’ spin in the salad spinner. If they’re fresh from the bag, lay them out on a clean towel to let them air-dry.

– Grab that bulb of fennel next. Trim the fronds and then slice it real thin, I mean paper-thin slices.

– Oh, and don’t forget the radishes. Wash, trim, and then slice them thin. We’re going for a nice crunch here.

– Now comes the mixing part. Combine your arugula, sliced fennel, and sliced radishes in a large bowl.

– Hold on, we’re not done yet! It’s time to prepare that zesty lemon vinaigrette. Squeeze the juice of one lemon into a small bowl. Tip in a dollop of honey for sweetness to counterbalance that tart lemon punch.

– Drizzle in about the same amount of olive oil while whisking. This emulsifies the vinaigrette, making it nice and smooth. Season it with salt and pepper to taste.

– Drizzle this vinaigrette all over your salad and then give it a gentle toss until everything’s well-coated.

And there you have it. Whether you’re having a solo meal or entertaining friends, this Arugula & Fennel Salad is bound to impress! Don’t forget to enjoy and save some for tomorrow’s lunch. After all, it’s always better the next day, right?

That was fresh!
