Yuk! It’s Monday, you are full of good intentions for a super healthy week……but you are too tired to bother…….
This wee crunchy fennel salad is so easy it makes cooking a tin of soup look difficult! Quick, zesty and tasty it compliments fish, meat and chicken.
I actually feel a touch sorry for fennel, it is a much forgotten wee veggie that is truly delish! However, it is one of those ones…..you either love it or hate it!
Crunchy Fennel Salad
3 Fennel Bulbs
Juice of 2-2 1/2 Lemons
80ml Olive Oil
2 tsp Malden Sea Salt
Fresh Black Pepper
Trim the fennel – cut away the outer leaves and the hard inner core.
Cut the fennel into really thin slices using a really sharp knife. You could also use a mandolin for this job!
Place in a serving bowl.
In another bowl, add the oil, lemon juice, Malden sea salt and black pepper. Using a small whisk, whisk it up until nice and smooth.
Pour over the fennel and toss it about until well coated.
Using a potato peeler add Parmesan shavings to the top of the salad.
Delicious and healthy and frighteningly easy!! Goes beautifully with grilled chicken or steak.
