I often eat fennel cooked but I forget about adding it to a salad 🙂
Crunchy and delicious, more mild in flavor than when it’s cooked. I love it cooked as well
And such a great flavor to add cooked to so many dishes. It’s over looked so often. We add it to roasted potatoes always.
Never tried that, I usually roast it along with cauliflower. But I agree, it’s delicious
This is wonderful! 😀
Thank you Linda!
I’m a big fennel fan, so would love this tasty salad anytime.:)
I agree, it’s so refreshing!
