3 tbsp. red wine vinegar
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 tbsp. water
1 tsp. mustard seed
1/4 tsp. dried tarragon

Wash and dry the lettuce. Tear the leaves into bite-size pieces and place in a large salad bowl.

Trim the tough outer leaves of the fennel, wash and core the bulb. Dice and add to the bowl. Add the pecans.

Combine the remaining ingredients in a jar. Cover and shake, then pour into the salad. Toss and serve.
