Expert Tips

  • Fennel bulbs are sometimes labeled as anise in the grocery store. Look for a long bulb of celery-like stems with bright green, feathery leaves that smell a bit like licorice.
  • Save prep time when you use a bag of fancy mixed salad greens instead of tearing up a head of Boston lettuce.
