Fennel and Cucumber Salad

I can just hear you saying, 'mmm.... fennel, now that sounds interesting. ' Because that's what I said when I first tried it and what everybody says whenever I serve it! Fennel is crunchy and sweet, with a refreshing taste that blends so well in a salad with minted dressing.


  • Ready Time : 0 min



  • 1 fennel bulb, thinly sliced
  • 8 - 10 red radishes, thinly sliced
  • 6 Israeli cucumbers (or any small cucumbers), thinly sliced
  • 3 green shallots (spring onions) chopped
  • fresh mint leaves to garnish


  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice or white wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh mint
  • 1 heaped Tbsp sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste


1.  Combine the fennel, radishes, cucumbers and shallots in a salad bowl.

2.  To make the dressing, whisk the ingredients together in a jug.  Pour over the salad, garnish with fresh mint leaves and serve.

  1. I’m having a moroccan luncheon. Does your cucumber fennell make a hit? I want a super side salad

  2. It’s delicious with Moroccan or any spicy dishes. It’s fresh minty (NB to use FRESH mint leaves) flavour makes it a wonderful accompaniment to almost any dish. Don’t be nervous to add more salt, if need be, it brings out the flavour.

  3. how many people does it serve?

  4. Hi Shelli, That’s a tough one. ARe you serving other salads with it. If not it should be enough for 6 – 8 people. It’s a fresh popular salad, have to warn you in advance!! Chag Sameach to you and your family.
