½ bulb fennel
1 handful rocket
1 handful dandelion, leaves
1 handful watercress
1 handful baby chard
4 spears asparagus
1 handful fresh chervil or parsley leaves
1 lemon oil or creamy French dressing
Trim the fennel bulb, reserving the herby tops, and finely slice it. Wash and dry your rocket, dandelion, watercress and baby chard leaves. Snap the woody ends off the asparagus spears (they will break naturally at exactly the right point) and discard them. Holding the base of the asparagus, finely slice each spear with a speed peeler into thin slivers.
Put the asparagus shavings in a bowl with the sliced fennel, the reserved fennel tops and all the salad leaves and herbs. Add some of your favourite dressing and toss together well so everything gets coated – that's it; fancy but easy! Here is the recipe for creamy French dressing.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
