2 Granny Smith apples, quartered and thinly sliced
2 medium fennel bulbs (about 1 pound), quartered and thinly sliced, plus 1/2 cup fennel fronds
1 cup fresh dill, picked
8 ounces radishes (watermelon or regular), quartered and sliced (see Cook’s Note)
1/2 English cucumber, quartered and sliced
1 head butter lettuce, torn in big pieces
One 4-ounce block Pecorino cheese, shaved
Apple Cider Vinaigrette:
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 shallot, finely chopped
Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
1/3 cup olive oil
- For the salad: Place the apple, sliced fennel and fennel fronds in a large bowl. Add the dill, radish and cucumber and toss all together.
- On a larger platter, layer the butter lettuce and top with the sliced veggies.
- For the apple cider vinaigrette: Add the vinegar, honey, mustard, shallot, a big pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper in a small bowl and whisk together. While whisking, slowly pour in the olive oil until fully combined. Taste and add more salt and pepper, if needed.
- Drizzle the vinaigrette over the salad and top with the Pecorino.
If the radishes are small, just cut them in half, then thinly slice.
