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

SJ’s NOTE:

You can’t keep the tossed salad to serve later as it will loose the crunchiness.
