This is a beautiful salad I fell in love with in Sicily. Fennel has the texture of celery but the taste of liquorice or aniseed. While high in fibre, vitamin C, folate and potassium, fennel is low in calories and also contains properties that help lower blood pressure and improve heart health. One of the most fascinating phytonutrients in fennel is anethole, which accounts for the sweet liquorice taste and has been repeatedly shown in animal studies to lower inflammation and help prevent cancer.
