1 large or 2 small fennel bulbs
1 tsp Cooks' Ingredients Sumac
150ml fat-free natural yogurt
1 tsp caster sugar
25g pack fresh mint, leaves only
110g pack pomegranate seeds


1. Slice the fennel finely using a mandolin or with a sharp knife.  Place in a bowl with iced water for up to 25 minutes.  (This helps make it very crunchy.)

2. In a separate bowl, mix the sumac with the yogurt and caster sugar.  Season well.

3. Drain and dry the sliced fennel in a salad spinner or clean tea towel.  Toss in a large bowl with the mint leaves.  Gently turn in the yogurt and scatter with the pomegranate seeds.  Serve immediately.
