Shaved Fennel Salad



  • 1 large fennel bulb
  • 1/8 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/8 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 TB dijon mustard
  • dash of salt and pepper
  • black sesame seeds (optional)


  1. Cut off the base of the fennel bulb. (Reserve the stems for making tea later.) Remove the stems and set aside. If it is a really large bulb, slice it in half. Carefully shave it on the mandoline blade, and set aside.
  2. Remove the fronds from the thick stems and place into a small bowl.
  3. In another small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper. Dress the shaved fennel as desired, and sprinkle with the fronds and seeds. Serve immediately.
