About this recipe: Radicchio, fennel, watercress and pecans are tossed with a lovely balsamic vinaigrette. A fabulously different salad that serves a crowd and looks beautiful in a bowl.
Crumbled gorgonzola cheese would be a fabulous addition to this already delicious salad.
Altered ingredient amounts. This salad really grew on me. It was a 4 with the first few bites, but by the time I finished, I wanted more. I halved the recipe, and even that made loads -- but the leftovers are just as good. If you have a mandoline, I'd suggest using that to cut the fennel nice and thin so it'll blend better with the salad, or you could use a food processor with the slicer blade. The only change I'd suggest is to add more cranberries and pecans, because they add a lot to the flavour but get somewhat lost with the amount of veggies. - 24 Jul 2008
This is a very delicious salad if you can find some nice fresh fennel and watercress. - 24 Jul 2008
