I was alerted to this recipe by a friend recently, who said she had heard about it from a friend of hers. One of those by-word-of-mouth legendary recipes. I was immediately intrigued and went rummaging through my Jamie Oliver cookbooks and found it in his very first one – ‘The Naked Chef’. The one where he looks so very young on the cover.
I’m not a mega fan of fennel, although it has to be said that this aniseedy vegetable is definitely growing on me. I quite like radish, but I wouldn’t want it to take center stage. When put together this salad of the two ingredients with a very simple dressing of lemon juice and olive oil is simply spectacular.
- 2 T lemon juice
- 5 T olive oil
- 1 t salt
- 1 t pepper
