Making the most: Grain, Fennel and Radish Salad with Butter-Lemon Dressing

After weeks of glorious weather, London has reverted to the overcast skies and cool temperatures it likes best. I’m glad that I made the most of the warmer weather while it was here, with much window-opening, skirt-wearing and salad-making.
