Updated: Jul 6, 2021

Arugula & Fennel Salad Recipe with Lemon Salad Dressing Recipe


  • 5 packed cups of arugula, washed and dried (or any other salad alternative)

  • 1 small fennel bulb, shaved or thinly sliced

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

  • Juice of one lemon (about 2 tablespoons)

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

  • Pecorino, to serve


  1. Combine the arugula and shaved fennel in a serving bowl. Combine the olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, and a few grinds of pepper in a jam jar or other small container with a lid. Shake the dressing until smooth and cream. Dip a leaf of arugula into the dressing and taste; adjust any of the dressing ingredients to taste. Pour half the dressing over the salad and toss gently to combine. Add more dressing a little bit at a time until you have dressed the salad sufficiently to your liking.

  2. Use a vegetable peeler to shave a few slices of pecorino over the top of the salad. Serve immediately.
