Chef Gianluca Deiana Abis: Fennel salad

Prep. time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 0 minutes

Difficulty: 1 out of 5

Serve: 2-4


1 large Golden Delicious Apple, halved and cored, thinly sliced

3 celery stalks

2 fennel bulbs, thinly sliced

1 carrot, thinly sliced

1/4 cup of olive oil

1/2 tsp sea salt

Juice of one lemon


Slice the fennel into very thin slices using a mandolin slicer or a chef's knife and put into a large mixing bowl. Cut the apple, celery and carrots into thin matchstick pieces. Add everything to the mixing bowl. The dressing is simple: olive oil and lemon juice with a little salt. Serve!

Chef tips:

My favorite way to prepare the fennel for this salad is to use a mandolin slicer to shave it into thin, lacy slices. Fennel can sometimes be a bit tough to chew, but when sliced in this way it’s crisp and crunchy. If you don’t have a mandolin, simply use a sharp chef’s knife to cut slices as thin as you can.
