fennel, onion and radish salad

Doctor Who in the background - children quiet. I didn't even bother to suggest that they try this since this kind of salad is probably 'not for them'.
This plate was a reward for trudging around a woeful car-boot sale, looking for Nintendo Gamecube games that the middle boy has to have but will rarely play. I'm glad I went though since the plate was the inspiration for the salad which was very nice indeed with roast chicken and new potatoes. It is delicious with fish too and, in my opinion, almost anything else! Ruth just slipped in that she has just finished the left overs, making it 'serves 2' when it could feed a couple more!


serves 4

  • one red onion (finely sliced)
  • 1/2 a bulb of fennel (cored and finely sliced)
  • 6 or 8 radishes (finely sliced)
  • fresh flat-leaf parsley (chopped)
  • salt and pepper
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • juice of 2/3 of a small lemon

  1. combine the vegetables and parsley
  2. make an emulsion of the lemon juice and oil by whisking - about 3 or 4 times as much oil as juice
  3. combine the dressing with the vegetables
  4. season, serve and eat
