The crisp, succulent textures and sweet flavors of fennel and grapes are paired together in this Fennel and Red Grape Salad recipe. A surprise ingredient, spiced pecans bring an unexpected bite to the mix. We used fresh chopped tarragon in the dressing; dried tarragon didn’t pack nearly as much flavor. For the brightest lemon flavor, we combined both lemon juice and zest in the dressing. It was most effective to use a very sharp chef’s knife to slice the fennel as thin as possible; we cut the bulb in half and sliced crosswise to cut the vegetable into translucent, ribbon-like strips.
