I first tried this salad at Prova Pizzeria in West Hollywood. I was shocked at how tasty three ingredients could be. As they did at Prova, I dress this salad with a simple dijon vinaigrette. Side note: the pizza here was also excellent.

the recipe: 

1 head romaine lettuce, chopped

1 granny smith apple, sliced thinly

1 fennel bulb, sliced thinly

dijon vinaigrette (1 tablespoon dijon mustard, 1/3 cup white wine vinegar, 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt)

salt + pepper to taste

the plan: 

Wash and prepare your salad ingredients. Chop, slice and arrange your salad in the bowl. Dress with the dijan vinaigrette right before serving to ensure your ingredients stay crisp.
