Fennel salad

Serves 6 5 min
As a rough guide, one fennel bulb should be enough to feed three to four people. As a first course this salad goes very well with good bread and thinly sliced salted beef or cured ham. It's clean crunch also makes a nice side to a steak or a meaty fillet of fish.


  • 1 fennel bulb
  • lemon juice
  • olive oil
  • fresh parsley to garnish and fennel fronds if available, chopped
  • salt and pepper


Prep time: 5 min
  • Step 1

    Trim the fennel, removing tough stalks and base but reserving the green feathery fronds. Quarter, then slice each quarter very, very thinly.
  • Step 2

    Arrange the slices in a serving dish, squeeze over lemon juice, then a generous drizzle of olive oil. Season. Chop the reserved fronds roughly and scatter over the top, along with a little chopped parsley.
