Fresh Fennel Salad

Do you need a salad? I need a salad. I adore shaved fennel and adding bigger flavours like herbs and something sweet to it. This simple salad is a great side to fish, chicken or prawns. I served it on the weekend for some dear friends who were round for dinner and we found out they were 11 weeks pregnant – Don’t you love that? More beautiful babies in the world with super cool parents.

I hope you enjoy it!
