Meet your perfect Thanksgiving salad. With radicchio leaves, sliced fennel, apples and a tangy honey-Dijon vinaigrette, this wintry side dish is a welcome palate cleanser between bites of heavier foods. (It’s also vegan!) Don’t forget to garnish with fennel fronds — they add vibrant color and delicate, earthy flavor.

Serves 4 to 6

Ingredients:

  • 2 large fennel bulbs
  • ½ cup plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper, divided
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped shallot
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 Treviso radicchio, cored and cut into 2-inch-wide slivers
  • 2 Pink Lady apples, cut in half, cored and thinly sliced
  • ½ cup Italian parsley leaves

Method:

Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or nonstick baking sheet.

Remove fennel fronds and reserve. Quarter fennel bulbs and remove core, then cut into ¼-inch-thick slices. Toss sliced fennel with 1 tablespoon olive oil, ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper on prepared baking sheet. Roast until tender and edges begin to brown, about 15 minutes. Set aside.

Meanwhile, in a small jar with a lid, combine ½ cup olive oil, shallot, mustard, maple syrup, vinegar, 1 tablespoon water and remaining ¼ teaspoon salt. Shake well until emulsified.

In a large bowl, gently toss roasted fennel, Treviso, apple and parsley with enough vinaigrette to lightly coat. Garnish with fennel fronds and a grinding of fresh black pepper before serving.
