Fennel, Cucumber, Anchovy & Caper Salad
We have a French market in Auckland on a Saturday and Sunday and if I lived a little closer I am sure I would spend most weekends there particularly for breakfast. I make a bee line always for the macarons but unfortunately this weekend the lady who normally sells them was not there so I had to make do with a homemade chocolate eclair instead…poor me.
Apart from cakes you can also buy French cheese, wine, bread and many other delicious French delicacies at the market. There are stores selling homemade pies, homemade ravioli, preserves and many, many other things and there is always local fruit and veg. I had my eye on the young fennel bulbs and popped a few into a paper bag to add to my already laden arms. It was the perfect start to a Saturday, a great breakfast, a great catch up with a friend and a tummy full of yummy food.
Here’s the salad I made with the fennel which goes perfect with fish.
