Chickpea and Fennel Salad with Lemons

Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year. Dishes are sugared to help make the year sweeter and more prosperous. Pomegranates, Chickpeas, Bread, Dates and Beets are superstitiously used to bring affluence.

Serves 6 to 8

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 lemons
  • 1 cn (14 ounces) chickpeas
  • 1 bulb fennel
  • 1/4 cup extra/virgin olive oil
Slice the lemons very thin. Bring a 1-quart pot of salted water to a boil; immerse the lemon slices for 20 seconds, then immediately remove and drain them. Put the lemon slices in a medium-size nonreactive mixing bowl and set aside.

Cut off the fennel stalks. Reserve a few of the fronds and discard the rest of the top. Split the bulb lengthwise and remove the core, then slice the fennel thin and add to the lemon. Drain the chickpeas and add them to the bowl. Season with salt and pepper and toss with the olive oil. Allow to marinate for 2 to 3 hours. Garnish with the reserved fronds.

NOTE:

Fennel is crunchy and slightly sweet, adding a refreshing contribution to the ever popular Mediterranean cuisine. Most often associated with Italian cooking, be sure to add this to your selection of fresh vegetables from the autumn through early spring when it is readily available and at its best.

Fennel is composed of a white or pale green bulb from which closely superimposed stalks are arranged. The stalks are topped with feathery green leaves near which flowers grow and produce fennel seeds. The bulb, stalk, leaves and seeds are all edible. Fennel belongs to the Umbellifereae family and is therefore closely related to parsley, carrots, dill and coriander.
