  • Wash the fennel, cut off the base, the hard fennel core and any damaged parts. Shred finely, either using a mandoline/v-slicer or a sharp knife.*
  • Don’t forget to chop up the fennel fronds to add to your salad!
  • Use a peeler to shave half a cup from your pecorino cheese.
  • Place all dressing ingredients in a glass jar or sealed container and season.
  • Shake well to combine, taste and adjust seasonings according to your liking.
  • Place all the ingredients (except the olives) in a large mixing bowl and season.

  • Taste and adjust seasonings according to your liking.
  • Arrange in a salad bowl, scatter the olives on top to garnish and serve.



*If you are not going to make this salad up immediately I strongly suggest you place the cut fennel in a bowl and fill it with cold water as it discolours easily.
