A memory of the Summer that has never been…  Very easy to do, bold flavours and can be prepared in advance. What’s not to like..?

Fennel with radishes and sumac (Adapted from The Guardian’s The 10 best salad drawer recipes)

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1 small fennel bulb, about 200g
  • 200g radishes
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Seeds of ¼ pomegranate (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon of sumac
  • Salt

Method

1 Have ready a bowl of water with 1 tbsp of lemon juice in it. Finely slice the fennel using a mandoline and place in the acidulated water until just ready to serve, to prevent it discolouring.

2 Finely slice the radishes and place in a bowl. Whisk the oil and remaining lemon juice together. Drain the fennel and mix with the radishes. Drizzle over the dressing and toss gently. Strew the salad over a large serving platter and scatter with the pomegranate seeds, if using. Finish with a dusting of sumac and a little salt then serve straight away.
