Here is the link to Rossella’s Salad with the figs and fennel. She is undoubtedly a better cook than me, but I think I would lightly braise the fennel. Rocket is not widely available here, but baby spinach is, and I would use that.
Rossella’s Simple but Wonderful Salad.
*Note to self: arugula is probably an easy addition to the food garden. Grow ones own arugula 🙂 i do grow the fennel, but it is not comparable to those available at the grocery. It comes true from seed each year, now. I have the bronze fennel for decorative purposes.

Oh i’m so embarrassed. I’m happy you liked it and personalized it.
Rocket or arugula, which is the right word to use? Sorry, I’m Italian.
Your fennels should be wonderful.
Please,please don’t be embarrassed… the names for garden plants are often numerous and both are right:
No Italian should ever apologize for being Italian (I’m just kidding and having fun with you- I know what you mean). I tried telling someone a compliment in Portuguese once… and called them a goat!
I am going to be on the lookout for it in the grocery store so I can make it as you do 🙂
