Contributed by: Samantha SAdded: Jul 06, 2010 at 10:33 AM


Fennel is one of my favorite vegetables and this dish really shows off its crisp sweetness and subtle licorice flavors.

  • fennel bulb
  • juice and zest from half a lemon
  • spoonful of honey (optional)
  • few splashes of olive oil
  • toasted pine nuts
  • sprinkle or two of sea salt
How to make it:
  1. Cut the shoots from the fennel and discard, reserving a good handful of green fronds.
  2. Chop these and toss them into a bowl.
  3. Peel the fennel bulbs, halve, core, and slice paper-thin, using a mandolin if you have one.
  4. Add to the bowl.
  5. Grate over the zest.
  6. Squeeze lemon juice over, to taste.
  7. Add the pine nuts.
  8. Drizzle over oil, to taste.
  9. Season with sea salt.
  10. Toss, taste and adjust the seasonings, and serve immediately.
