ARUGULA, FENNEL & GREEN APPLE SALAD w/GOAT CHEESE & CHAMPAGNE DRESSINGThis is one of the delicious dishes we enjoyed at The Bentwood Inn in Jackson Hole, Wyoming during our recent visit. The unique combination of green apples, shaved fennel and arugula is so fun and fresh! We added a little crumbled goat cheese, just because we love goat cheese, and plus it complemented the salad flavors so well. But, no cheese or blue cheese would also be wonderful with this salad. Melissa (the chef at The Bentwood, served it with sherry-honey vinaigrette at the inn, but we decided to toss it in our champagne dressing and loved the resultsThis is an easy salad to make with pre-washed arugula and then all you have to do is shave the fennel and the apples and make the dressing! You can use a mandoline slicer to shave the fennel and thinly slice the apples, but you can also use a potato peeler for the fennel and a sharp knife for the apple. You just want to get both of these as thin as possible!

This irresistible salad features juicy pears, salty gorgonzola (or blue cheese), crunchy fennel, peppery arugula, sweet dried cherries and nutty walnuts. A quick apple cider vinaigrette ties everything together. It’s always a crowd pleaser, and it pairs perfectly with just about any main course, from holiday roasts, to baked chicken, to weeknight pastas. If you’re not a blue cheese fan, goat cheese and feta are also delicious (although this salad has converted blue cheese skeptics!). Don't miss my step-by-step video above!

There is something so great about the fresh taste of celery and usually, it is relegated to being a small ingredient in a larger dish, like an ingredient in soup or salad or even as a minor character in spicy chicken wings. It never dawned on me to make it the focal point of a dinner salad until my good friend Mouna served it to us one night! From that point on, we were hooked, and we’ve enhanced the salad by adding blue cheese and toasted pecans and also incorporating some of the celery leaves, which are not only beautiful but add a flavor all of their own! They are slightly more bitter, but so fresh tasting and they make the salad a bit more complex in nature. This salad is so easy, and all you really need is a good potato peeler or a mandoline slicer if you have one, and your favorite vinaigrette. One of our favorites for this dish is our super light and Zesty White Balsamic (Dijon) Vinaigrette, but any bottled or your favorite homemade dressing will work great. So many options! If you have a dressing you love, please send it our way and we’ll give it a try!

This grilled chicken paillard is light and refreshing, but incredibly dynamic. Warm grilled chicken is topped with a salad of crunchy shaved fennel, peppery arugula and tender baby potatoes. Sliced almonds give the salad crunch, golden raisins provide sweetness, and a flurry of feta adds just the right amount of saltiness. I love the subtle anise flavor of tarragon in this dish, but you can swap it out for other herbs (either a single herb or a mix), such as dill, basil, parsley and/or mint. Be sure to check out the other ingredient swaps below. To get a jumpstart on the recipe, pound out the chicken breasts the day before (refrigerate them until you’re ready to use).
