This crunchy Shaved Fennel salad is light, tasty, low-cal, and filling, just perfect for a romantic dinner because it includes the aphrodisiac celery. And it stores well for a couple of days, so make a big batch.


¼ cup pine nuts

1 large fennel bulb (very thinly sliced)

5 celery stalks (very thinly sliced)

½ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley (chopped)

1/4 cup lemon juice (freshly squeezed)

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Kosher salt and pepper (to taste)

1/4 cup shaved Parmesan


Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add the pine nuts. Toast for 5-10 minutes, until golden brown, stirring occasionally and keeping an eye on them so they don’t burn.

Meanwhile, thin-slice your fennel and celery and chop the parsley – Add them all to a large bowl.

Toss fennel, celery, and parsley with lemon juice and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and sprinkle with shaved Parmesan and toasted pine nuts.
