Fennel, Mushroom, Celery Root and Parm Salad Recipe

What a refreshing salad! I got this from the Greens cookbook and it is yummy!
1 clove garlic
teaspoon coarse sea salt
2 tablespoons lemon juice zest of one lemon
1/8 teaspoon fennel seeds, crushed
5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
8 ounces large firm mushrooms Pepper
1 fennel bulb
1 celery root
1 tablespoon fennel greens, chopped
1 tablespoon Italian parsley, chopped
3 ounces parmesan reggiano, shaved

Pound the garlic and the salt in a mortar until completely smooth. Stir in the lemon juice, zest, fennel seeds and olive oil to make a tart lemony vinaigrette.
Thinly slice the mushrooms, carefully dress them with a few tablespoons of the vinaigrette and plenty of fresh ground pepper. Lay a damp kitchen towel or piece of plastic wrap directly over them to keep them from browning and set them aside to marinate for one hour.
Trim the fennel bulb and cut it into quarters. Remove most of the core then slice it lengthwise, very thinly, leaving the pieces joined together. Also slice the celery root in the same fashion. Dress them with most of the remaining vinaigrette and half the herbs, and season with salt and pepper. Add the rest of the herbs to the mushrooms.
Layer the mushrooms, cheese and fennel on each plate and spoon the remaining vinaigrette over the top.

Serves 6

It's the same thing. If one cannot find celery root then jicama could be used as a substitute.
