You don’t need a lot of ingredients for a beautiful salad. You don’t even need lettuce! This salad combines crisp thinly-sliced vegetables for the base and uses jarred olive tapenade as a shortcut to a very flavorful dressing.



  1. Combine the sliced fennel and celery in a bowl. Add the tapenade, fennel fronds, vinegar, olive oil, a pinch of salt and a generous grinding of pepper. Toss well, then let stand at least 10 minutes.
