I expected my new macaron kit to be delivered today. It wasn’t. And I had to look for an alternative recipe.
At the weekend I bought a mortar and pestle so I decided to crush some caraway seeds (1 tablespoon) and white peppercorns (1 teaspoon) for a fennel salad dressing.

Add some sea salt and a teaspoon of honey.


Add 2 tablespoons of oil (I chose rapeseed oil), 3-4 tablespoons of vinegar (I used apple vinegar) and a teaspoon of mustard.

Slice your fennel very thinly. I used a kitchen gadget that is very common in Swiss households. A Börner slicer. I think it was the first thing my parents bought me for my first flat. It is a brilliant gadget but should come with a health warning because it is hellishly sharp. When using it you really have to watch not to slice off half your finger!

Mix the fennel with the caraway seed dressing and leave to infuse for a while. Fennelicious!
