Fennel Salad with Fresh Prunes

As soon as fennel comes into season in Autumn, make this salad. The prune plums are an excellent flavour combination with the fennel.

Fennel’s crispness is so summery, it is a wonder that it is an autumn and winter vegetable. They are hard to find in Summer, but keep an eye out for good quality ones that are not too expensive. Otherwise this makes an excellent Autumnal dish on the warm autumn days.

Fennel Salad with Fresh Prune Plums

Slice a fennel using a mandoline for even thin slices. Chop the green fronds from the top of the fennel. Cut prune plums into slices, avoiding the centre stone.

Make a normal vinaigrette and add a Tablespoon of finely grated or chopped ginger – I use a microplane grater for this.

Combine together and enjoy!
