Another one of our favorite week-end spread! My husband loves fennel and simply cannot have enough of this salad. Kids like it thanks to the addition of the apples and pears.


  • 2 fennel bulbs
  • 1 small apple
  • 1 small pear
  • 1/4 cup of walnuts
  • 2 celery stalks
  • Fresh mint and chives to garnish
  • Dressing: 1 lemon, 2 tbsp of balsamic, 1/4 cup of olive oil, 1 tbsp of maple syrup, salt and pepper


Using a mandolin, thinly slice the fennel, celery, apple and pear. Really watch out for your fingers (I know from experience that mandolin can be dangerous).

Transfer it all to a serving platter and add the chopped nuts.

Make the dressing by zesting and juicing the lemon and then whisking all the ingredients together.

Drizzle on top of the salad and add some fresh chopped herbs. If you like cheese, some fresh sliced or grated parmesan would be amazing here as well!
