One more time

Posted by Jim Carfrae on July 21, 2010

Shoot me for my lack of creativity, I have served the same salad to different guests three weeks in a row. Well actually the same recipe, new salad each time. I tried it as an experiment – never having eaten fennel before and my wife hating all things licorice, yet it was her idea to serve it the second time.

Fennel Salad Third time

We have a new product we just launched at work, Cube-etti – it comes in two varieties: diced pancetta and prosciutto pieces. It is amazing how versatile they are and we luckily had chef Leo from Humber College develop some great recipes for us. They can all be found at cube-etti.com, product is at Metro and Sobeys.

 Anyway, go straight to the fennel salad with Cube-etti prosciutto and melon! One fennel is perfect for 4 people, make no mistake there will not be leftovers. It takes no time to make and brings together many great flavours, the fennel is a subtle licorice that blends in, it does not overpower. My friend Jeanette had thirds.
