Thai Celery and Fennel Salad (serves 4)
The Thai ingredients are freshly squeezed lime juice and Fish Sauce (Thai Kitchen brand). The salad is very light and crunchy. It would easily transport to a picnic or would be a nice and unusual addition to take as a pot luck dish to someone’s party/BBQ, etc.
6 oz celery – diced
6 oz fennel – chopped into small pieces
1 bunch of scallions/spring onions – finely chopped
3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
Juice of 1 lime
2 tsp. fish sauce
Place all veg. in a large bowl.
Put dressing ingredients in a screw top jar and shake hard so they mix together well.
Pour dressing over veg. and mix well.
Leave to stand for 1/2 hour or so before serving so flavors can develop
