Fennel and Walnut Salad

“I love using fennel, a more unusual salad ingredient, so this is one of my favourite salads”. Lesley

Fennel resembles a rounded, swollen cluster of celery stalks with green-tinged ribs, and is related to the herb and spice seeds of the same name. All share a mild, sweet licorice flavor. Strip away any coarse outer portion of the fennel bulb before using in recipes.
