This is an easy summer salad, best served for a light lunch, preferably with rye bread. It’s unpretentious, made from usually available ingredients and is just tasty.

Inspired by Russian and Greek cuisines, it gets a nice twist from white miso and fennel fronds.

Note that the sauce should be added just before serving.
