Green Salad with Raisins

Aromatic fennel fronds and celery root add crunch to a raisin salad.




    • 1/2 large fennel bulb with fronds
    • 2 cups small flat leaf parsley sprigs
    • 3/4 cup small curly parsley sprigs
    • 1/2 medium celery root, peeled and cut into matchstick-size pieces
    • 3/4 cup California raisins
    • 1 package (8 ounces) prewashed, shredded iceberg lettuce


    • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
    • 3/4 teaspoon sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1/3 cup olive oil


    Tear enough fennel fronds into small sprigs to measure 1 cup. Rinse; trim and discard fennel stalks. Quarter bulb lengthwise; then cut lengthwise into paper thin slices. Toss sliced fennel with fronds, parsley, celery root, raisins and lettuce in a large bowl.

    Whisk together lemon juice, shallot, sugar, salt, pepper and oil in a small bowl. Pour over salad and toss to coat thoroughly.
