    Shaved fennel salad with spiced yogurt

    This Middle Eastern inspired summer salad is really quick and easy to make.

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes, plus soaking
    • Total time: 10 minutes, plus soaking

    Serves: 4 as a side


    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.
