My Fennel & Pear salad.

Updated: Oct 1, 2021

I know what you're thinking - how can a fennel & pear salad be Japanese?

Simple answer - it isn't - but one of my Japanese friends asked how she could use fennel (it isn't a native vegetable in Japan - the giveaway is that there's no Japanese name for fennel - it's called "fe-ne-ru" in Japanese!). It's a shame that fennel isn't more popular in Japan - the Japanese don't know what they're missing, do they!

Anyhow, I thought I would use the opportunity to share with her (and you) one of my favourite salads - fennel and pear in a mustard and honey vinaigrette. The fennel makes this substantial enough that you could eat it as a lunch or even a dinner (maybe sprinkled with some crumbled blue cheese or tofu if you want a vegetarian option.....). There's no cooking involved, so this dish is quick and full of fibre and goodness. Best of all, it tastes great!

If all this has your taste buds tingling, you can find the Youtube tutorial by clicking Fennel & Pear salad. The written recipe can be found via the link here.

Happy cooking! Kurumi XXXX.
