Sicilian shaved fennel salad

 Sicilian shaved fennel salad from Jamie's 15 minute meals:

(recipe customized for 2 servings)

1/4  of a large fennel bulb (if using a small bulb then use half of it) 
1 inches of a celery heart 
1 spring of fresh mint 
1/4 lemon (slice both halves off the end and use the middle peel and all, just shave it in the mandolin until it's super thin - almost see through) 

(1/4 shaved red onion - optional! I love red onion and this is my addition to the salad) 

Use a mandoline on fine to shave all of these down, including the lemon!! If making a larger batch use a food processor with a shaving blade. 
With the mint simply pile the leaves on top of each other, roll them up and slice thinly into strips. 

Add all to the bowl, including the juice from the lemon that will collect below the mandoline. 

Drizzle with olive oil, a pinch of salt and a splash of vinegar (whatever you like to use!)
