Fennel Salad with Green Goddess Dressing

  • Calories per serving: 48

This is a flavorful, unusual salad made with fennel, a crisp, faintly licorice-flavored vegetable. Look for firm, unbruised, medium-size bulbs with fresh, celery-like stalks. The herbal Green Goddess dressing complements the fennel perfectly; the creaminess comes from soy milk rather than the usual sour cream and mayonnaise. Thick and tangy, the dressing also makes a great dip for crudités or sauce for steamed vegetables.

Directions
  1. In a blender, purée all dressing ingredients; season with salt and pepper. Chill.
  2. Combine fennel, cucumber, scallions, carrots and greens. Drizzle with about half of dressing and toss lightly; add more to taste. Serve immediately.
