Add to the salad bowl with the apples, fennel, cucumber, celery, spring onions and olive oil. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

Wow... Despite the time it takes to prepare all the ingredients (so much chopping), this is extremely delicious and was raved about by all my guests. Served as part of a Caribbean themed evening and would also serve along with a BBQ. Easily halved or doubled.
