I don't often cook as my partner is a great cook.
This was lovely, easy, and our guest asked for the recipe.
It's an all round winner.

This beautifully simple salad is lovely. We served it to friends who had never eaten fennel before, and they fell in love immediately. Such a fabulous vegetable made even better by an excellent recipe
