Warm Fennel-and-Bitter Greens Salad

Inspiring Idea Danielle Custer of Taste in Seattle wilts basil and watercress in a hot skillet for a minute or two before tossing them with spinach and arugula.

Quick Take Grace Parisi makes a crunchier version of Custer's warm salad with bitter greens, radishes, fennel and shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.

  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

  • One 1-pound fennel bulb, cored and very thinly sliced

  • 4 small radishes, very thinly sliced

  • 1 bunch watercress, thick stems discarded

  • 5 ounces baby arugula (5 cups)

  • 1 small head of radicchio, leaves torn

  • 1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves

  • 2 ounces Parmigiano-Reggiano shavings (1 cup)


  1. In a large bowl, whisk the vinegar with the honey. Add the olive oil and whisk until emulsified. Season with salt and pepper. Add the remaining ingredients and toss well.
  2. Heat a large, deep skillet until very hot. Add the dressed salad and toss over high heat just until barely wilted in spots, about 30 seconds. Transfer to plates and serve immediately.
