Fresh Fennel Salad
It was a sunny day, for a change and so I thought of going out for a short walk to local super-market in afternoon time. Well, it’s true that I hardly find any new ingredients in veggie/fruits sections there… Still I enjoy exploring different racks & aisles :P This time, it wasn’t so… For the 1st time, I saw a bulb of fresh fennel there!!! Usually, we find it here in farmer’s veggie market only. But I couldn’t miss a chance to grab one immediately. And as always, I returned with a bag full of kitchen elements :P
I was very excited to use this fennel bulb someway, but didn’t get many ideas in mind. All I could think was a quick, aromatic salad and yes, I tossed it for dinner! The smell was so refreshing, quite like the taste!!! And my salad greens added some more crunchiness to it. Knowing that it goes great with parmesan, I shaved my parmesan block a bit :P
1/2 Fennel Bulb
2 tbsp Parmesan, shaved
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 cup Greens-Mix
1 tbsp Lemon Juice
Salt, to taste
STEPS TO FOLLOW:
- Wash and peel the outer layer of fennel.
- Using a mandolin or peeler, shave this bulb thinly lengthwise.
- Toss with rest of all ingredients.
- Serve it immediately!
You can’t keep the tossed salad to serve later as it will loose the crunchiness.
Nice.. will try it. I have actually never tried using fresh fennel.
I absolutely love fennel salad!
I just love fennel, well, one reason and important one, my husband name is Fenil too.
Hahaha… ‘m sure u dont make salad wit tat name! :P
No I roast it and then use it in salad.
This looks refreshing , tasty and delicious. I am in love with the background board :)
I make soup with this fennel but never tried in salad, looks excellent.
Again- what a great summer salad!
I’m yet to use the fennel as we hardly see them here. I’m sure it would be very refreshing.
