Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 4 servings


  • ¼ cup pine nuts
  • 1 large fennel bulb (very thinly sliced)
  • 5 celery stalks (very thinly sliced)
  • ½ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and pepper (to taste )
  • 1/4 cup shaved Parmesan


  • Heat a skillet over medium high heat and add the pine nuts. Toast for 5-10 minutes, until golden brown, stirring occasionally and keeping an eye on them so that they don’t burn. 
  • Meanwhile, thin slice your fennel and celery and chop the parsley – Add them all to a large bowl. 
  • Toss fennel, celery and parsley with lemon juice and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and sprinkle with shaved Parmesan and toasted pine nuts.


  • Unlike lettuce based salads, this salad retains its great crunch for a couple of days, so be sure to save any leftovers!
  • Store any leftover pine nuts in the freezer – They’ll stay fresh for much longer this way.
