Millenium Salad recipe

A snapshot of the Hub-UK
menu in December 2000
Hub-UK first came into existence back in May 2000. Seems a long time ago now!

Back then the internet was a very different place with much more of an amateur feel to it. In a lot of ways it was a pleasanter and more friendly place to hang out. For those of us interested in food and cooking it was a great opportunity to chat and share ideas with people living in other parts of the world.

It was also a time when everyone involved in cooking, whether they were just a keen amateur, a busy mum, a grandmother with a lifetime of kitchen experience or a professional chef just starting a career in the kitchen or one who was an old hand working at the stove, was happy to share recipes so others could enjoy them.

A lot of the details of who contributed what have either become blurred or disappeared over the years but the recipes are still worthwhile either in their own right or for the inspiration they might give.

This is a refreshing crunchy salad which goes with many different dishes and is especially good with barbecued food. Quantities can be varied according to taste and availability of ingredients. The following is based on a main course salad for two people.


1 Fennel bulb
10 small radish or half a mooli
1 small red chilli
1 small green chilli
1 small bunch of spring onions
Bunch of fresh mint
Italian Dressing

  • Thinly slice fennel and place in bowl for mixing.
  • Thinly slice radish lengthways (if using mooli slice into 2 inch long thin strips). Add to bowl.
  • Chop spring onions and add.
  • De-seed chillis and chop finely - add to other ingredients.
  • Take the leaves off five or six stems of mint and chop finely before addding to the other ingredients.
  • Mix everything together and then add 2 tablespoons of Italian Dressing (see below) or more according to taste.
  • Mix together well and it is ready to serve.


I use Tesco's Italian Dressing from their Finest range. It is not practical to keep all the ingredients for making up dressings for day to day cooking unless you are cooking for large numbers. Any similar dressing will do. This is the description given to the dressing: " A classic blend with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, basil sauce and black olives".

Serves 2
