Spiced Carrot and Fennel Salad recipe

Preparation Time: 10 minutes | Cooking Time: 2 minutes
This peppery salad is the perfect accompaniment to a big Indian curry - the clean, sweet flavours of the carrot and the aniseed flavour of the fennel are the perfect pairing to the spices in the salad.


  • 2 large carrots
  • 2 fennel bulbs
  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 tbsp. lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp. mustard seed


  1. Very thinly slice the carrots and fennel bulbs. Place into a bowl.

  2. Put the mustard seed into a hot frying pan and toast for 30 seconds. Take the pan off the heat. Add the oil and lemon juice and stir to make a dressing. Season to taste.

  3. Pour the dressing over the carrot and fennel and toss to coat. Serve immediately.

You could add whole cracked black peppercorns, chilli flakes or fresh coriander to the dressing. Recipe serves 2.
