I love fennel. And fennel loves me. And we both love this recipe.
Easy and delicious
So good, never had fennel in a salad but it really works. Definitely be making this again.
Fabulous with fish. Think Italy, sunshine, sea bass!
Nice. Tried this before, the fennel is not to everyone's taste. Try celeriac for an alternative. Hard boiled egg too.
