Pear, Fennel and Parmesan Salad

Fennel Pear Salad

We love this salad – light texture but big on flavour. Really there is no excuse not eat vegetables because this only takes minutes to make. Add some lean protein to make a complete meal!





  • 2 baby fennel, trimmed
  • 2 firm green pears
  • 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon white wine or apple cider vinegar
  • 80g cheese – my favourite is crumbled Roquefort (French blue) or thin shavings of parmesan parmesan
  • ¼ cup toasted walnuts, roughly chopped



Fennel: Using a sharp knife or mandoline, thinly slice the fennel across the bulb

Pear: Hold pear upright on an even surface and thinly slice down each cheek trying to keep its natural shape.

Dressing: In a small bowl, whisk olive oil and lemon juice together. Add a splash of water and whisk to combine.

Place fennel and pear in a large bowl. Add dressing and toss well.

Place salad on a platter and top with walnuts and shavings of parmesan.

Serve with protein of your choice e.g., chicken, lean roasted pork or fish such as salmon or trout.
