Fennel and Pear Salad

In the mood for a quick salad for dinner after a long day at work and desperate to use up random bits about the house namely a pear, some fennel and some feta. It turned out to be a refreshingly light salad that just oozed late summer to me. The saltiness of the feta pairs well with the aniseed taste of the fennel and the honey sweetness of the pear.

One note of caution- it doesn't keep too well. Eat the same day and before the pear turns brown.

1 pear, thinly sliced

handful of walnuts, candied or unsalted

Sounds and looks delicious. I'm discovering that fennel is rather like Marmite - people tend to either love it or hate it! I'm of the former camp so will be giving this lovely recipe a whirl.
