It’s hard to imagine a more refreshing salad than this in winter, or any time of year, for that matter. The combination of salty feta, sweet apple and crunchy fennel makes for a wonderfully cheerful salad that's fresh and invigorating. The best part? it can be thrown together in about 10 minutes, and leaves you feeling both fancy and virtuous. 

Serves 4

2 fennel bulbs, halved lengthwise and finely sliced
A small handful of fresh mint, finely sliced
1 apple, finely sliced into wedges
4 sticks of celery, finely sliced
100g feta, crumbled
Juice of half a lemon
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp poppy seeds

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, and toss gently to combine. Season to taste with sea salt, and a little ground pepper.
