DeLallo Summer Recipes: Strawberry Fennel Salad with Shaved Pecorino

Strawberry Fennel Salad with Shaved Pecorino


A summer salad with the crisp, clean taste of fennel and juicy, tart strawberries. We toss this tasty salad with a fresh, homemade balsamic vinaigrette to bring out the best flavors of the strawberry. Toasted pine nuts and coarse sea salt give this salad an added texture.


  • 3 tablespoons DeLallo Aged Balsamic Vinegar of Modena
  • 1/2 teaspoon DeLallo Natural Coarse Sea Salt, plus more for fennel
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped shallots
  • 3 tablespoons DeLallo Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 head fennel, cored and cut into paper-thin slices
  • 5 ounces arugula
  • 1 pint strawberries, sliced
  • 1/3 cup toasted DeLallo Pine Nuts
  • 2 ounces Pecorino Romano, shaved


In a bowl, combine vinegars, salt, pepper and shallots. Add oil in a slow, steady stream while whisking, until fully incorporated.

Combine fennel, a pinch of sea salt, arugula, strawberries and pine nuts in a large serving bowl. Toss together until thoroughly combined. Drizzle with vinaigrette and season with additional salt and pepper to taste. Toss well to coat.

Garnish with shaved Romano.
