  • About

The fresh, lively, cleansing effect that this salad has on the palate comes from the way the two ingredients act upon each other. The mellow, licorice-like quality of the finocchio picks up briskness from the arugula’s pungency which is even more accentuated if you can obtain the sharp-edged leaves of wild arugula. In the event you are using wild arugula, you might want to use a little less of it. The softness of arugula’s leaves contrasts with finocchio’s crispness, just as the dense green color of the former dapples the bright white flesh of the latter.
