  1. Prep the Grill: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Make sure the grates are clean and lightly oiled to prevent sticking.

  4. Make the Coffee Vinaigrette: In a small bowl, whisk together the ground coffee, balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, extra-virgin olive oil, and honey (if using). Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Assemble the Salad: Arrange the grilled fennel and celery on a serving platter. Drizzle the coffee vinaigrette over the top.
  6. Garnish and Serve: Sprinkle the chopped parsley over the salad for a fresh, vibrant touch. Serve immediately and enjoy!
