Preparation

Tear into small chunks the Sourdough bread. Choose varieties such as piccolini, and red and gold santini for the mixed cherry tomatoes. Finely chop the basil leaves.

Method

  1. 1 Heat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6. Soak 8 wooden skewers in water for 10 mins.
  2. 2 Thinly slice the fennel bulb lengthways, keeping the root intact so that the slices hold their shape.
  3. 3 Put in a roasting tin, drizzle with 1 tbsp of the oil, season and roast for 20 minutes, until golden.
  4. 4 Meanwhile, thread the bread and tomatoes alternately on to the wooden skewers.
  5. 5 In a bowl, mix the remaining olive oil with the basil.
  6. 6 Season and brush generously over the skewers.
  7. 7 Heat a griddle pan to hot or fire up the barbecue.
  8. 8 Cook the skewers for 2 mins each side, until the bread is golden and crisp, and the tomatoes are blistered.
  9. 9 Whisk together the dressing ingredients and toss through the roasted fennel and salad leaves.
  10. 10 Serve on a large platter and top with the skewers.
