Sometimes you just need to liven up a meal and this salad is perfect for that! Luckily fresh herbs can be found all year around, even here in the cold Nordics thanks to green houses, and I couldn’t be more grateful that I can spice things up with these little flavour bombs. In this recipe I combine fresh parsley, dill and basil with fennel and lemon to bring you freshness galore.

I created this recipe to go alongside these savoury mushroom steaks, parsnip and white been puree and dukkah that I’m making as a main course in my Valentine’s menu this year. To complete the menu I suggest this starter of bruschetta with green olive tapenade and finishing off with my orange chocolate pots. Hopefully after all that you can feel nothing else but loved up from the inside out!
