Based on a Parsley & Celery salad recipe from a cooking mag (Bon Appetit or Gourmet, can't remember which, just that it was sometime in 2006 or 2007. I think.) Anyway, I subbed fresh fennel bulb for the celery, added carrot shavings, and tweaked the dressing a bit. The recipe is for 2 (though I've been known to eat an entire recipe in one sitting), but the ingredients are in amounts that can be multiplied easily. —Chris Hagan
carrot, peeled and shaved into ribbons
fennel bulb, halved, cored, and thinly sliced (use a mandoline if you have one)
Italian parsley leaves, rough chop
whole-grain mustard (Dijon also works)
Combine the carrot ribbons, chopped parsley, and sliced fennel in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, stir together the mustard, orange juice, salt and pepper. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil, whisking to emulsify. You may not need all the dressing, so add only about half to the vegetables and toss. Add more if necessary. Allow to sit about half an hour for the flavors to meld.
