Fennel, Green Bean Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing
There’ something about beautifully coloured foods that gets our mouth watering before we’ve even eaten and this fennel, green bean salad with poppy seed dressing is no exception! We love the cleansing taste of fennel and mixing it up with green beans and this yummy dressing is yummy. It’s pretty enough to take a pic of, and if you do then don’t forget to tag us in your pics, you might just win a sharing pouch of your fave flavour of our sharing pouches of macaroons.
225g green beans (ends trimmed)
1 medium bulb of fennel
2 baby gem lettuces
1/2 large yellow pepper or 1 small pepper
1/4 cup walnuts

Heat a pan with water and steam the beans until just cooked through.
On a board, thinly slice the fennel and the pepper. You could also use a mandolin for this if you have one. Roughly cut the lettuces into quarters lengthways. Slice the avocado into strips.
In a bowl mix together all the ingredients except the lettuce with half of the dressing below. Then layer this between chunks of lettuce in your serving bowl. Drizzle with remaining dressing and serve.
