Like celery, fennel is one of those vegetables that can be a bit of a struggle for some people like me. I struggle with celery, whereas my husband struggles with fennel. We have learnt to juice them in order to get the nutritions out of them but I have to say this fennel salad recipe got everyone raving.
A small bulb of fennel, thinly sliced
1 pear, thinly sliced
Handful of cherry tomatoes, cut into halves
Half of cucumber, thinly sliced
2 satsumas roughly chopped
Handful of chopped parsley
For the dressing:
Combine all the ingredients together and set aside. Mix the ingredients for the dressing in a little bowl (I use jam jars, makes it fun for the kids to shake it) and pour it all over the salad. Now get in there with your hands and give those ingredients a good rub.
I would taste the dressing as you go along, I don’t use fixed measurements because it totally depends on your palette. I like mine sweeter, some others might like it tangier. So help yourself!
I hope you enjoy it! Please let me know if you like the recipe.
