Arugula, Fennel, and Avocado Salad

The flavors of this salad are all very unique on their own.

Arugula has a bit of a bitter, spicy flavor.

Fennel tastes like licorice and anise.

Avocado has a mild flavor that mixes well with others.

Put these all together and add some lemon juice and Parmesan cheese and you have a tasty and unique salad.

Is this keto-friendly?

Yes! This is a naturally-low carb recipe. There is no added sugar in here anywhere. So put this on your keto menu for the week.

Is this salad a vegan recipe?

This is almost vegan. It’s vegetarian for sure. But if you want it to be completely vegan, omit the cheese.

Salad Arugula, Fennel, and Avocado Salad

1. Prep Your Vegetables

To save time, I use pre-cut and trimmed arugula. It makes it so much easier when all you have to do is cut up the fennel and avocado.


Make sure you clean the fennel very well before you cut it. The dirt can hide in the leaves!

2. Mix Everything In a Bowl

Add all your chopped veggies to the bowl and mix it all up.

3. Add Your Dressing

This dressing can be used for so many other things too. I like to use it as a marinade for chicken and pork.

How far in advance can you make this salad?

I love to make this salad on Sunday and munch on it throughout the week.

What do you serve it with?

This salad goes with almost anything. You can serve it with a chicken dish, or pork. It will also compliment grilled steak.
