Recipes from Karen Martini

Fennel & orange salad with currants & fetta

"This tasty, refreshing winter salad is great with a braise or slow-roasted joint of lamb or pork. I make it over and over again, sometimes using blood oranges if they’re around. The sweetness of the oranges and currants and the spiky flavour of dried chilli works perfectly with the salty fetta and the anise notes in the fennel." – Karen Martini
