3 tbsp Classic Vinaigrette (Recipe)   45 mL
1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed   1/2 lemon
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g

40 g Gorgonzola cheese, Roquefort, or other blue cheese , crumbled    

Before you start

A mandolin will make slicing the fennel easier.

Method

  1. Prepare the vegetables. Trim the fennel stalk and feathery leaves, discard any tough outer layers, then very finely slice the fennel crosswise using a mandolin and put the slices in a salad bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the classic vinaigrette and lemon juice. Add salt and pepper to taste, then pour the vinaigrette over the fennel, toss well and let stand 10 min.
  3. Wash the lettuce, then spin-dry. Tear the leaves into bite-size pieces and add them to the salad bowl. Wash the grapes, dry, halve and remove the seeds (if needed). Add the grapes to the bowl, then crumble the blue cheese over the salad.
  4. Toss and serve immediately.
