What ingredients do you need for this celery and fennel salad?

Fennel and celery: Thinly sliced fennel is crispy, crunchy and pairs perfectly with any main dish. I love pairing it in this salad with crunchy celery and loads of lemon juice.

Greens of choice: We are using dandelion greens for this recipe, but you can use any dark leafy green you love, like micro greens or arugula.

Dressing: Nothing fancy here, just olive oil, salt, pepper and freshly squeezed lemon juice.

Optional additions: You can add any additional vegetables or toppings here to amp up your salad, such as walnuts or pine nuts, parmesan cheese, red onions, fresh mint leaves or basil.
