Apple fennel salad

This goes really nicely with fish on the side or on its own with some dark  brown bread slathered with a little butter!

  • 1 packet of rocket (6-8 handfuls)
  • 1 fennel bulb, sliced super thin (you guessed it mandolin)
  • 1 apple sliced super thin (I used a granny smith but any tart apple would be perfect
  • 1/4 cup chopped dill
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1. Combine salt with the lemon juice and stir to dissolve. Let stand a few minutes before combining with olive oil and black pepper.
2. In a large salad bowl, toss together the arugula, fennel, apple, and dill. Toss gently with the dressing to coat well. Serve immediately.

  1. I am glad a mandolin is mention here again, as I wanted to share my first successful experience with one. Over the weekend I 'mandolined' a whole bucket of sauerkraut - without a single incident. I'd not dare to publish the recipe here, but give you just a hint - it had a single ingredient.
