  • Shrimp Apple Fennel and Daikon Salad Recipe

Preparation time: Approximately 30 minutes
Portion: 2-3
Calories per portion: +/- 400 (If 2 portions)

*Note: Shrimp are suggested but optional


This fresh salad consists of two unusual ingredients that you wouldn’t normally find in every kitchen, Daiken and Fennel. Not only do they contain very few calories, but they can be eaten raw just as well as being cooked. Both bring their own distinct flavor and health benefits to the recipe, making it even more interesting.

Daikon is a white winter root vegetable, also known as “ Oriental Radish” and is often served with Sashimi and Tempura in Japan. The taste is softer than the red summer radish and the texture is crispy and juicy. Daikon is a very good source of Vitamin C, Folate and Potassium.

Fennel is a plant that has a sweet, mild anise taste. It goes well with both fish and shellfish. It also goes great on the barbecue with other vegetables such as bell peppers, onions, and zucchini. Also, the fronds of the fennel carry a great source of antioxidants. They can be use in pesto, yogurt dip recipes and blended with your favorite ingredients for juice.


Salad Ingredients

1 chopped medium fennel bulb (+/- 2 cups)
1 sliced green apples
1 sliced Daikon radish (+/- 1 cup)
2-3 beveled sliced celery stalks (+/- 1 cup)
2 chopped green onions

½ cup of crumbled feta cheese


Vinaigrette Ingredients

2 Tbsp of olive oil

1 tbsp of honey
2 tbsp of apple juice
1 tbsp of Dijon mustard
