This salad makes use of the unique flavours of radishes and their leaves
- 2 fennel bulbs
- 5.0 tbsp olive oil
- 1 unwaxed lemon
- 2 shallots , finely sliced into rings
- 2 bunches leafy breakfast radishes
- Separate the leaves from the radishes, wash and dry them, then set aside. Finely grate the zest of half the lemon, then juice all of it. Tip the zest into a salad bowl and toss through the shallots. Leave to macerate while you prepare the rest of the salad.
- Trim the fennel and slice it as finely as possible, then quarter the radishes. Just before serving, toss all the ingredients, including the radish leaves, with the lemon juice and olive oil. Season with salt and black pepper, then serve. This salad is great with grilled fish or chicken.
