Recipe from My Recipes

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 small heads fennel (about 1 3/4 lbs. total)
  • 3 red, yellow, and/or orange bell peppers, stemmed, seeded, and slivered lengthwise

Directions

1. In a small bowl, whisk lemon juice, olive oil, mustard and honey to blend. Add salt and pepper to taste.

2. Trim stalks from fennel; chop enough feathery green fronds to make 2 tbsp. and reserve. Cut heads in half lengthwise, then shave into paper-thin strips or cut into thin slivers.

3. In a bowl, combine fennel and bell peppers. Drizzle with dressing and mix gently to coat; cover and chill at least 1 hour and up to 1 day. Just before serving, sprinkle with reserved fennel fronds.
